SOME TOURIST INFORMATION:
La Carrera del Darro and the Paseo de los Tristes is for many one of the world's most beautiful streets.
Its official name is Carrera del Darro until it opens a wide avenue overlooking the Alhambra, here his name is Father Manjón, but popularly known as the Paseo de los Tristes for being the place where the funeral procession passed in way to the cemetery since the beginning of the century until the rise to the cemetery (behind the Alhambra), was done by the Cuesta de los Chinos, which begins at the end of the ride, so all the funeral procession passed by this place.
This walk runs parallel to the river Darro, formerly Dauro (Latin Aurus = gold) because people have used to wash gold in their orillas.En past this river was crossed by numerous bridges, of which the bridge connecting the Cadi the Alhambra with the Albayzín. Another of them leads to the source of Hazel is Aljibillo Bridge, still standing.
The Bridges of Cabrera and Espinosa are still preserved in good condition and allow us to contemplate across this beautiful ride from another perspective
Walking the street is a festival for the senses as the traveler accompanying the beautiful views of their churches (San Pedro), convents where the nuns sell candy, Arab baths, the smell of incense and spices, bright colors from the picturesque craft shops, bars and restaurants. You can always stop and listen to musicians who give their show on the street, under the imperturbable gaze of the mysterious Red Castle, the Alhambra
The location is fantastic, just above the river Darro and in front of Alhambra Palace
Very easy access and elevator in the building
this is a very romantic place with a bohemian atmosphere
minibuses and taxis are allowed to pass though this street
Other Things to Note
Just to remind that the number 10 is at the end of the street, just in front of 47

We had been in touch with Blanca a couple days before we arrived, got clear directions from her and were able to pick up (email hidden) a couple doors down from the apartment building. We stayed in the 2nd floor apartment with direct views of the Alhambra and it was absolutely lovely.
As it was Holy Week from the front balcony we could see the religious processions going by which was incredibly lucky - thanks to Blanca's tips to keep an eye out for them (she also gave us great restaurant recommendations!). And we were able to store luggage after check out.
The only negative was that the street noises carried into the bedroom and with Holy Week celebrations it was a bit boisterous so if you are a light sleeper you may want to use the v comfy couch in the living room (my husband took siestas on it!).
All in all a v positive experience and I would come back in a heartbeat - you simply cannot beat the location!
Blanca was very easy to communicate with and very accommodating. Her apartment is beautiful and in a very peaceful setting. We were so excited to see the view from the window and hear the river water running by. It is very clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is convenient and fun with many places to shop, eat, and explore. It was Semana Santa, so we were able to enjoy the processions just down the street. But the festivities did make it a little noisy in the bedroom, but the family room was very quiet. It was a lovely stay in a magical setting!
Lovely apartment in a great location looking over the Alhambra. Walking distance to everywhere. Blanca was a great host and was flexible with our slightly late check in.
This was a very nice apartment and well situated for access to the city and for Alhambra. We enjoyed our stay there (6 nights). I loved the fact that we could open the balcony doors to get a breeze, to hear the babbling brook, and to see Alhambra (beautiful view at night!!!). It was a comfortable and clean flat. Our host, Blanca, welcomed us on arrival and provided us with literature and maps to the city which helped us get a good start. The bathroom is small but functional. The bedroom overlooks the main road which is mostly quiet but can be noisy on a Friday and Saturday night [ not a problem for city dwellers like us but light-sleepers should take this into account ].
Blanca was very accommodating even when we arrived late because we got lost.
Wir waren für zwei Tage in Granada. Die Wohnung von Blanca hat die perfekte Lage, um Granada, die Alhambra und den Albaicín zu erkunden. Vom Fenster aus sieht man die Alhambra und in knappen 10 Minuten ist man im Stadtzentrum an der Kathedrale. Die Wohnung ist nicht mit dem Privatauto zu erreichen, sondern mit dem Taxi oder einem Minibus. Die Kommunikation mit Blanca war äußerst unkompliziert, obwohl wir uns gar nicht persönlich kennen gelernt haben, da Blanca gerade verreist war. Die Wohnung war sauber und ist eigentlich für 2 Personen ausgerichtet. Bei Bedarf kann eine Person aber noch auf dem Sofa schlafen.
Wir würden diese Unterkunft jederzeit weiterempfehlen.
The apartment is centrally located with easy access to and great views of the Alhambra. Blanca was easy to communicate with and responsive. She was very accommodating with our check-in, and arranged for us to pick up the keys despite our late evening arrival. The apartment is clean and well-equipped with all the basics. We had a very pleasant stay - thank you Blanca!

Hi, my name is Blanca, I'm from Madrid, although I have 20 years in Granada, came to study a course in college and I was delighted the city,so I decided to move to the Albayzin. Many of you will understand me when you know Granada ...
The houses I offer are all located in the historic center of Granada and have charm. I live in Granada and I'm here most of the year. You can contact me if you need any help or advice during your stay in this magical city
