EL REALEJO

Day Trips

EL REALEJO

The Realejo of Granada was the old Jewish neighbourhood of Muslim Granada. According to many historians, the name of the city of Granada comes from Realejo.

Day 1 - El Realejo de Granada
Events of the day
Barrio El Reaejo
Realejo is now a heavily populated neighbourhood, and its streets are vibrant with a distinctive character. 

You can reach the Realejo of Granada from the Alhambra, walking through winding streets, between the Carmenes and whitewashed houses, and the Puerta del Sol, a former laundry that still stands as a witness of the past. 

The Campo del Principe is the meeting place next to the Church of San Cecilio built on an ancient mosque.  

This is the place visitors usually go for. On one side of the square there are many bars and taverns with Granada's typical tapas, and it is a pleasant place to sit in the summer in the cool shady terraces. 

Walking down the streets of Realejo, you will see the Palace of La Casa de los Tiros from the sixteenth century with its stone façade, the Palace of los Condes de Gabia, and the Church of Santo Domingo, founded by the Catholic Moncarchs in 1492. 

Descending towards San Matias Street, you can admire interesting buildings such as Antigua Capitania, the Convent of the Mercedarias, The House of Gran Capitan, and the Imperial Church of St. Matthias, which gives its name to the street, and the Plaza Mariana.
