Plaza Larga, Albaicin
The most charming and bohemian square in Albaicin is compulsory for any solo visitor to Granada. There is, of course, the usual jumble of tapas bars and terraces to try out, but on Plaza Larga you can join the locals instead. Simply buy some refreshment from one of the many nearby stores, sit on one of the benches and watch the local life unfolding. Plaza Larga provides a sort of concentration of Granada itself in one tiny square: tourists from all over the world, smart Spaniards from down in the centre, and scruffy, guitar-wielding Gypsies who are liable to burst into song at any moment.
