Just in Gran Via in front of the cathedral... Do not miss it, the best ice creams...
And you will see that most of the people that go there is locals.....
I was shown this place ten years ago by a local..... and still enjoying it...
UPDATES the last time I went to Granada this was closed. Maybe they are closed in winter and only open in summer, not sure.
2010 UPDATE it is still open, i read on the news that Michelle Obama stopped there with the daughter for an ice cream LOL

On our short visit , we kept on returning here ,
evey evening , sometimes before siesta...
Think about it this way. The Alhambra is also
a mixture of knowledge and cultures on a
place where you would not expect it....
Maybe the Spanish making Italian icecream
is the perfect coctail to make glorious icecream.
And it is inexpensive ,
2 euro for a piece and the smile is for free.
Heladeria Ice Cream Shop 'La Venenciana', called normally the Italians, just in front of the Cathedral.
