Take a taxi, the view is awesome but you'll enjoy it a lot more if you're not exhausted from the very long climb to the top. Don't stay in the mirador - it's usually full of tourists - climb the church's tower for better views, or just chill out in one of the restaurants with direct view on the Alhambra... More

We didn't take a minubus, C1 or C2, but took a short hike through Albaycin to Mirador de San Nicolas. Although the path to it is quite confusing (we had to ask severla times), the view is absolutely magnificient. Don't just take a short look, but take some time to sit on the wall and enjoy view over Alhambra listtening... More

Must go to see the daytime & night time view of Alhambra. Short walk from Plaza Nueva! There are restaurants located where you can take a break from the walking. Many locals brought their own food and drinks to enjoy.

The view of Alhambra is hauntingly mysterious in the night. The Alhanbra though is a bit lacking in atmosphere, probably due to too much reconstruction...

If you get a chance to visit the mirador, do it. There is a beautiful view of the alhambra and to get there, you walk through some beautiful little streets with many arabic shops. Nice to see. There is also a tapas bar at the mirador, so you can relax a little after your walk upstairs.

We walked up to the Mirador through the Moorish quarter's narrow street and took a couple of pictures and headed back down. View was average but the walk up & down were interesting with 2 bridal parties / weddings and one staggette with the girl on a donkey being cheered on by her friends.

There is a view of the town in the distance as well as Alhambra and Generalife in the distance. Spectacular view...not much else except some cafes and a walk through Albazin area.

Situated in upper Albayazin, the square of San Nicolas is a very pretty place outside the church of the same name, presently being rebuilt inside by the local parishioners. The view from the square across to the Alhambra is spectacular. This is a lovely square for people to meet, have a drink and generally enjoy the views.

It was an ok walk through the streets to get to the overlook. Once there, just a bunch of people standing around looking at The Alhambra. The Alhambra is stunning but the mirador was just a bit crowded. We took a couple pictures and started our way back.
