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.
