Translated as Field of the Prince, this Granada square is said to be named after Prince Juan, whose late-15th-century wedding was supposed to be celebrated here. Today, however, it’s more popularly known as a pilgrimage destination come Holy Week, during which the 17th-century Cristo de los Favores cross plays the star.
Year round, people also come here to enjoy the many tapas bars that surround the square — perhaps while letting the kids burn some energy on the plaza’s playground. Humble as the square may seem, it has a special allure thanks to its historic cross, its typically Andalusian pebble-designed ground, and because it’s very much considered one of the most important places in Granada’s Realejo neighborhood, once the city’s Jewish quarter.
The square is a short walk from other Granada sights, such as the Alhambra and the Albaicín. It is also a stop on the city’s hop-on hop-off train.
