Andalusia Sights

Granada can be characterized by its major neighborhoods: East of the Darro River and up the hill is La Alhambra. South of it and around a square and a popular hangout area, Campo del Príncipe, is Realejo. To the west of the Darro and going from north to south are the two popular neighborhoods, Sacromonte and Albayzín (also spelled Albaicín). The latter is the young

and trendy part of Granada, full of color, flavor, charming old architecture, and narrow, hilly streets. On either side of Gran Vía de Colón and the streets that border the cathedral (Reyes Católicos and Recogidas—the major shopping areas) is the area generally referred to as Centro, the city center. These days much of the Alhambra and Albayzín areas are closed to cars, but starting from the Plaza Nueva there are minibuses—nos. 30, 31, 34, and 35—that run frequently to these areas.
