The view over the Alhambra is stunning, with the city below as a backdrop. A cold and windy place in December at 8pm but a quick retreat to the Moroccan tea shop did the trick!

Very nice view of the alhambra, sunrise and sunset. The only downside was the pesky musician who goes around asking for $ after every single song and the peddlers who smoked a lot continuously. Very strong cigarette smell on the 3 occasions I was there, so avoid at all cost if you can't stand the cigarette smell. Otherwise, it is... More

Getting there is not the easiest way as you have to wander up the steep and narrow streets of Albaicin but once you get there you are get there (ideally half an hour before sunset) you are going to witness a hell of experience. The pink/orange colours of the sun light shed on the amazing nature and Arabic architecture of... More

Amazing view of the Alhambra. It was quite a walk (steep streets) to get there (we followed google map), but definitely worth it!

We were in Granada on a busy weekend which included two public holidays. The views were great, but it was so crowded that we could not really enjoy it. I did enjoy the walk up though and would do it again tomorrow if I could.

we walked across the small streets of the neighborough to finally reach this place. You get a really nice view and have some people playing guitares & singing typical gipsy songs.

A vigorous walk uphill in winding cobblestone streets leads you to a panoramic view of the grandeur of Toledo's natural and built wonders. We ran into a group of Gypsies in their Peña, which added to the moment. Great photography, nice little eateries and tavernas for a drink and tapas.

Take bus C1 from Plaza Nueva for 1.20€ per ticket one way. I like to walk a lot, but I wouldn’t really recommend walking here when there is a bus. It is a looong way uphill on very narrow streets with crazy traffic. Your time is worth the price of the bus ticket. Buses fill up fast but are plentiful.... More
