On the top of Albayzin is the best place to see Alhambra at glance and white houses of Granada. There is a church of Saint Nicolas which you can visit and give some donations for reconstruction.

A must if visiting Granada, from the terrace you can view the Alhambra in its full glory on the hill above.

The place is situated in Albayzin and have a amazing view over Alhambra, Generalife, Granada and Sierra Nevada. This is really a place you cant miss when you are in Granada, just make sure you avoid the time when everybody else is here (sun rise for example) so visit in the morning or before sunset.

Well worth the walk up a great way to explore the Arab quarter on the way back. Fantastic photo opportunities all the way there and back down especially of the Alambra palace

Got there on the bus- train which is a cheap and worthwhile trip around Granada. What a wonderful perspective of the City, Alhambra and Generalife.

Family members who walked (ascended) to the top found stunning panoramas of the city and mountains, and declared it worth the steep climb. Taxi travel is fairly cheap and may be a good means of checking this out if steep climbs are not for you.

Views of the Alhambra from here were more impressive than the visit to the Alhambra. You may be lucky to hear some excellent flamenco/Spanish guitar players while enjoying the view.

We were lucky enough to be staying just around the corner from this great view point, so we saw it many times. The best was at night, when the sun was setting on the Alhambra. Often locals playing and singing Flamenco and the Bar Kiki was a great place for a drink and free tapas

While the Mirador San Nicolas is always a lively spot and the view is unsurpassable, a further option while there is to visit the recently re-opened church of San Nicolas which is just by the mirador. It's in the process of being restored and the Amigos de San Nicolas are happy to explain it's history. The volunteer who spoke to... More

Clinton said it was the most beautiful town in the world, I would only repeat the Spanish saying the one who has not seen Granada has not seen beauty!
