Monuments in Realejo
Realejo is the old Jewish neighbourhood of Granada, or Garnata al-Yahud (Granada of the Jews), as it was called in the Arab period. It is right at the foot of the Alhambra, and the Sephardic legacy can be readily appreciated in the streets and hidden corners. A statue of the Jewish scholar Judah ben Saul ibn Tibbon presides the entry to the neighbourhood from calle Pavaneras.
Nowadays, it is an extremely pleasant and tranquil neighbourhood that invites visitors to take a walk and discover its secrets, like the Corrala de Santiago, a traditional 16th century courtyard house, and the Placeta de la Puerta del Sol, a lovely viewpoint with an old public washing place. Take a break and try some of Granada's local dishes from the sidewalk restaurants in Campo del Prínicpe, a large, very popular square in the centre of the neighbourhood with a casual atmosphere.
