Puerta De Elvira, Granada Reviews
Neat to see a part of this gate still standing. There are nice restaurants around the entrance and a larger square with benches to sit and relax. Through the opening, there is a small communal fountain. Not sure if this water it potable or not as I witnessed in a matter of 5 minutes a dog jump in, a lady doing her laundry and a man wash his face in it. Good place for people watching.
One of most emblematic and famous places of Granada. That door were one of principal gates to antique city of Granada or Elvira as it were known in old times.
Great area to walk around, but the wall it's just a wall. I didn't find any information plaque nearby.
A nice arch, great views of Granada if you keep walking for 5 minutes
My favorit place. Plaza del Triumfo
