Paseo de los Tristes is the point of encounter for the people of Granada, this square beside the River Darro takes its curious name from the funeral processions which used to pass through it before winding their way up to the cemetery. Also named the Paseo del Padre Manjón (Boulevard of Father Manjón) in honour of the monk who founded a school for poor children in Sacromonte, one of its main attractions is the magnificent view of the sun going down behind the Alhambra.
