Opinions about Realejo in Granada
Fell in love with it!
This old neighborhood is located just beneath the Alhambra. We fell in love with it.

Walk across Campo del Príncipe and discover its narrow cobbled streets. There are some nice restaurants in the area.

We visited Plaza Santo Domingo and its amazing church. Very recommended to wander around the main streets, such as Calle Pavaneras or Calle Molinos.
