What to see in Granada
One of the most popular recreational places in Granada is the famous Paseo de los Tristes, officially known as Paseo del Padre Manjón, as it offers a very pleasant walk and spectacular views of the city.
Its peculiar nickname is due to the fact that in ancient times it was the route used by funeral processions heading towards St. Joseph cemetery in Granada. This walk follows the course of the Darro river between the Arab bridges of Chirimías and Aljibillo.
In addition to its recreational and tourist attraction, the Paseo de los Tristes has great heritage value. Proof of this is the fact that the Chirimías House—a square building with the appearance of a small turret— is still preserved. It dates back to the 17th century and rises in front of Chirimías Bridge, of Arab origin but rebuilt in 1882.
One of the ideal times to admire the Paseo de los Tristes is in spring, when visitors and tourists can enjoy its spectacular views, both day and night, thanks to the good weather. They can sit comfortably on the many terraces located there.
