If you have a chance to stay in this neighborhood-you should. The small plazas and tapas restaurants are a delight. St. Nicolas is a bit overrated.

As we couldn't get tickets to Alhambra in time, we couldn't visit it but instead of the mighty palace , we walked around the hillside opposite. It was worth doing so! Beautiful buildings, lovely and narrow little streets, beautiful views! We loved it a lot!

It is great to stroll down the narrow streets of this part of the city. Very colourful and various shops and bars.
