Plaza Bib Rambla Tours

Plaza Bib Rambla
Also known as Plaza de las Flores (Flowers Square), pedestrian-friendly Plaza Bib-Rambla is at the heart of Granada’s bustling street scene. In the center of the plaza is a 17th-century marble fountain featuring Neptune, and the bell tower of Granada’s Spanish Renaissance cathedral peers over townhouse facades with wrought-iron balconies.

The Basics
Guided walking tours of Granada typically include a stroll through Bib-Rambla, used for bullfights in Moorish times and later as the site where missionaries purged Islamic literature and ordered Muslims to convert to Christianity. Over time, Bib-Rambla morphed into the heart of commercial Granada; customs houses were built on the square to monitor the spice and textile trades, while produce markets were established in neighboring streets.

Today, the square overflows with weekend craft markets, flower stalls, buskers, and cafés serving creamy horchata de chufas (southern Spain’s almond-and-vanilla drink), inky black espresso during the day, tapas in the early evening, and Andalucian delicacies at night. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Since smaller, family-run shops may close in the afternoon for siesta, plan to browse in the morning or early evening.
  • The plaza is especially popular during the summer, with locals and tourists partying late into the night.
  • Be sure to try churros with chocolate at one of the cafés in the square.

How to Get There
Plaza Bib-Rambla lies in the pedestrianized center of Granada, a short walk from the cathedral. The square is also easily accessible by public transportation, with several bus stops nearby. Though parking spots can be difficult to find here, there is a car park at Parking Escolapios on Rey Catolico. Taxis are also readily available.

When to Get There
Bib-Rambla is an important place for local festivities such as El Día de la Cruz (or Cruces de Mayo) in May, when small altars topped with crosses and adorned with pottery items pop up around town. During the Christmas season, the square comes to life with festive decorations.

Alcaiceria
Originally a silk market, the neighboring Arab market, known as Alcaicería, is a maze of narrow streets and stalls that sell mostly souvenirs, along with ornaments, leather goods, clothes, ceramics, jewelry, and spices. Even if you’re not looking to buy, the photogenic bazaar is definitely worth a visit to browse and take photos.
