Tapas of Granada

A visit to Granada will never be complete without a visit to the tapas bars and taverns, where a variety of succulent dishes are offered as a courtesy of the house, usually with a glass of beer 'Alhambra' or a wine from the Granada Denomination of Origin.

It should be remembered that tapas are not limited to the capital, but are a tradition that extends throughout the province. It is possible to enjoy tapas anywhere in Granada, taking advantage of the opportunity to discover the specialities and typical variants of each town.

The city offers several tapas areas . Among many others, we can mention:

The Campo del Príncipe and the Plaza del Realejo and its surroundings , a neighbourhood that was once the Jewish quarter of the Muslim city.

Plaza Nueva and adjacent streets like Elvira, Colcha and the beginning of Reyes Católicos, which is the heart of the city.

Near the Cathedral, the Plaza de la Romanilla and the Plaza de la Pescadería are also two hubs of the city's tapas tradition.

Next to the Town Hall is Calle Navas , a pedestrian area with many typical bars and taverns. The popularity of this area has led to its extension as a place for tapas to Rosario, San Matías and Varela streets.

The walk through the Albaicín district has four obligatory stops to get your strength back: Larga, San Miguel Bajo, Aliatar and San Nicolás , behind the church.

Near the river Genil, Alhamar street and its perpendiculars near San Antón .

The Plaza de Toros, beneath its lines, is home to restaurants, tapas bars and drinking establishments.

Outside the centre, we recommend a visit to the La Chana neighbourhood , very popular with students for the large size of its tapas bars, and the Zaidín neighbourhood , near the Estadio de los Cármenes, in streets such as Torre Pedro de Morales and Emperador Carlos V.
