Paseo de los Tristes, Granada

Paseo de los Tristes is located on Valle del Darro.

Although it is officially named Paseo del Padre Manjon, its designated name comes from the funeral processions on the way to the cemetery. 

Nowadays it pays tribute to Padre Manjon, a priest who built a school for poor children in the neighbourhood of Sacromonte. On the same street we can find a sculpture in memory of this celebrated figure.
