One of my Favourite places that I visited in Granada! This is the heart of Granada - it's old centre.

I stumbled upon this square after visiting the Cathedral area, and was immediately hit by the scent of Lilies from the flower stalls!

I loved the atmosphere of the square, peaceful, but busy, plenty to see! Great spot for people watching!

The focus of this square is the fountain, held up by figures of giants!!
Also in the square are attractive lamps and pillars.

The outer perimeter of the square has some architecturally attractive buildings, with the ground floors housing restaurants and shops.

The Archbishops palace , which was the original seat of the Christian University overlooks the square, and there are views of the Cathedrals' Bell Tower.

If I ever win the lottery, I'd buy one of the buildings overlooking this square!! ;-)

There are many canopied pavement cafes to enjoy a drink, snack or meal, whilst people watching! (please see my restaurants tips for more info.)

Plaza Bib - Rambla has had an interesting (and violent) history.

At various times it was the stage for jousting, bullfights and even as a place for torture and burnings during the Inquisition! - The ashes were apparently thrown into the River Darro, which used to flow by the square (before it was covered by roads and buildings)

The entrance to the square diagonally opposite the Cathedral was known as the gate of ears, as ears cut from criminals were hung onto the walls of the gate to warn others with ill intent not to enter the city
