Best view on Alhambra at night and good atmosphere on the little square next to the mirador. Next time we will walk there during day time

This is the best spot to view of the Alhambra especially at sunset. We viewed Alhambra 30 mins before and after sunset. You will get a better appreciation of the colors and lightings of Alhambra. The Mirador itself is very nice and lots of activity. There are places to eat and watch the street performers.

Bit of a trek unless you get the No.35 Alhambra minibus from Plaza Nueva (www.lovegranada.com/transport/alhambra-buses). Lovely area to walk around with the Alhambra as a backdrop - stunning sunsets and a real buzz with guitarists busking. A few little bars serving food or lovely free tapas with your refreshing beers.

A great spot from which to see The Alhambra, particularly in the evening. Also, there are several good bars and restaurants here.

At night this spot is a bit of a mad house because it is crowded with people wanting to get the spectacular nighttime shots of the Alhambra all lit up. Don't let that keep you away. It is worth a visit day or night!

You really come here for the view of the Alhambra across the ravine. It's crowded, but worth it for the views. Come here at sunset if possible.

This is a great place to watch a sunset. You get an incredible view of the Alhambra and Granada. It is a popular spot but never uncomfortable.

Has great views and worth visiting both during the day and then at night. The night view is really something to see. Lots of activity with a small market selling trinkets etc
