Paseo de los Tristes in Granada - a Beautiful Walkway in the Shadow of the Alhambra

Paseo de los Tristes offers stunning views of the Alhambra and begins at the point where it crosses the Bridge of the Chirimias; the Chirimias are a kind of flute that was once played from a balcony or veranda built there for such use.

Although the Paseo de los Tristes is officially called Andres Manjon, it is known by this name because funeral processions on the way to the cemetery once passed through it.

buildings and nature around paseo tristes granada Paseo de los Tristes was, until the nineteenth century, one of the busiest areas in Granada where festivals and feasts took place.

Paseo de los Tristes was laid out in 1609 on land provided by the Lords of Castril.

There still exists the small building with a tall square-shaped tower and façade decorated with the shields of Granada, near the high bridge of Chirimias.

The fountain in the middle of the Paseo de los Tristes dates from 1609.

To the left of the Paseo de los Tristes, facing the Alhambra, extended the Districo of the Axares. The Moors called it the Hospital of Africa for its beauty and cool climate.

Opinions about Paseo de los Tristes in Granada

Right beneath the Alhambra
A very crowded area at the foot of the Alhambra. Here you will walk by the river Darro (it´s more of a stream than a river) and enjoy amazing views, specially at night.

There are very interesting places here, such as the Arab baths (Bañuelo) and the Archaeological Museum. The place is full of restaurants and bars with terraces. Too touristy for my liking.
