1.Carmen de los Mártires
In case you still did not know the origins of Granada’s Carmenes, these were a typical type of house, rustic and fenced, that had a garden, green space, orchard and fountain or pool.
Its origin is Nasrid, but today we still have some, such as the Carmen de los Mártires, the best known and the largest in the entire city.
It is located within the Alhambra enclosure and its entrance is free, so you can explore it freely while taking pictures of its beautiful gardens, its pond and its views of Granada.
In spring and autumn you will find the most beautiful color contrasts and it can also be a good place to take pre-wedding or post-wedding photos in Granada, as well as any other report.
The city’s souk is located in the heart of the historic center, next to the Cathedral, and is one of the most picturesque places in Granada.
Very narrow alleys, with Nasrid style arches and columns and with many Granada handicraft shops, where you can buy the popular Fajalauza earthenware, inlaid objects, souvenirs or colored glass streetlights, among many other things.
And why not, an ideal place to take original photos!
3.Placeta de Toqueros
The Abaicín of Granada is full of little corners where you can take beautiful and unique photos. And one of those corners is the Placeta de Toqueros, a stepped street that allows you to see beautiful views of the Alhambra in the background.
It is undoubtedly one of the best places of Granada to take photos and at the same time it is unknown to many of the visitors.
4.Paseo de los Tristes
It is one of the best known, touristy streets and probably the most beautiful street in Granada.
Cobbled street, on the Darro River and located on the slope of the Alhambra. So the Paseo de los Tristes becomes one of the most photogenic places in Granada.
You can’t forget this place in your photos!
5.Graffitis of Realejo
If you are looking for a different image of Granada, we recommend you stroll through the Realejo neighborhood, where there are numerous works by the Granada-born graffiti artist El Niño de las Pinturas.
Facades and doors of shops are filled with vitality, color and reflective phrases that invite you to take a picture with your camera.
Could this be the best place in Granada to take photos for Instagram?
6.Lavadero of Puerta del Sol
It sounds like Madrid, but nothing to see, in Granada we have a charming little corner from which you can see beautiful views of the city, especially at sunset.
It is a public laundry that was built in the 60s with materials from the 17th century, in the old Jewish quarter of Granada, the Realejo.
7.Mirador de San Nicolás
It is a basic among the basics of the best places in Granada to photograph the Alhambra.

8.Espaldas de San Nicolás Street
Right behind the Great Mosque of Granada and next to the popular Mirador de San Nicolás, you will find a charming little street that could be one of the most picturesque places in Granada to take photos.

If you keep wondering where to shot the best photos of Granada, this is one of our favorite places 😍
Not all visitors come here, as it is located in the highest part of the Albaicín, offering spectacular views of the Alhambra, the Albaicín and the surroundings of the city.
That is why it is a popular place to watch the sunset, when the different tones of the sky mix with the night lights that turn on in the city.
