Realejo-San Matías (or simply the Realejo) is a neighborhood of the city of Granada situated in the old town, at the foot of the Alhambra by its southeast side. It was a Jewish suburb of the
Muslim city, when it was known as Garnata al-Yahud, "Granada of the Jews". When the Christians took the city, it was renamed as Realejo and a military camp was installed at this place.
Today remains a maze of narrow streets so steep that many are staggered. There are also many townhouses and the typical cármenes. This district is also famous for its graffities which
you can see at a lot of places.
