Behind the ruins of El Cadi Bridge stands the Mudéjar Church of Santa Ana with a Platereque portico and tower of glazed tiles which was inspired by Arab minarets.

 

 

The Plaza Nueva is crowned by the Royal Chancellery, a 16th century Renaissance palace, the main façade with Baroque traces. The courtyard by Siloé and the coffered staircase are particularly interesting Adjacent to the El Albaicin is El Sacramonte, popular with tourists for their gypsy caves which are adorned with hand-made copper and ceramic articles typical of Granada and the venue of live, if not spontaneous, flamenco.
