Campo del Príncipe Tours

Campo del Príncipe
Campo del Príncipe—the Prince’s Field—is said to be named for Prince Juan, whose late-15th-century wedding was supposed to be celebrated here (but wasn’t). Today the square is known as a pilgrimage destination during Holy Week, when its 17th-century white alabaster Cristo de los Favores cross serves as the main draw.

The Basics
Year-round, people come to humble Campo del Príncipe to enjoy the many tapas bars that surround the square, while kids play on the playground. Thanks to its historic cross and traditional Andalucian pebble-cobbled street, the campo has a special allure. It’s considered one of the most important places in the Realejo neighborhood, once the city’s Jewish quarter, and is a stop on the hop-on hop-off train that travels around Granada.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Foodies will enjoy the number of tapas restaurants that surround Campo del Príncipe.
  • The Realejo neighborhood, where the plaza is located, is known for its street art.
  • The area’s narrow cobbled streets can be tricky to navigate by car; walking is recommended.

How to Get There

Campo del Príncipe is a short walk from other major Granada sights, such as the Alhambra (which is about 15 minutes away) and the Albaicín. You can also access the plaza on the C35 bus line, and the city’s hop-on hop-off train stops there as well.

When to Get There

The most popular event of Holy Week takes place on Good Friday in Campo del Príncipe, when worshippers gather before the Cristo de los Favores cross to say prayers, followed by a moment of silence and the petition of three favors. There are also religious processions throughout Granada at this time.

Bib Rambla
Another, and perhaps more popular, gathering spot for locals and visitors, Bib Rambla is a square in the center of Granada with a marble fountain of the Roman god Neptune and plenty of shops and cafés where you can grab churros, espresso, and tapas. The plaza is especially popular on warm summer nights.

Guided route through the Realejo: former Jewish quarter of GranadaCultural Tours

Guided route through the Realejo: former Jewish quarter of Granada

High quality guided route in its contents to discover the popular Granada neighborhood of Realejo, also known for being the old Jewish quarter of Granada. "Garnata al Yahud" (Granada of the Jews), as the Muslims called it, was razed in 1492, so today we find nothing that links this neighborhood with its Jewish past.The Realejo was the place of residence of the highest social classes of the Nasrid royal family and after the City's takeover, of important families such as the Granada Venegas or the Fernández de Córdova.The palaces coexist with popular architecture, such as the Corrala de Santiago, historicist style; the Alhambra Palace Hotel, the Carmen of the Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation or the oldest examples of Muslim architecture in the city such as the Bermejas Towers, from where there is a spectacular and very little known view of the emblematic Torre de la Vela.
