Impromptu guitar concert whilst sun was setting over the Alhambra and pinking up the snow capped Sierra Nevada backdrop. STUNNING evening!

A good place for taking pictures, but also to have a coffee or sit outside and have some tapas. Quite crowded naturally

Try to arrive close to sunset - but a little early, so you can have a seat right at the edge of the Mirador. It has an amazing view of the Alhambra!

Visited during a self-guided tour of the Albayzin in the early afternoon in the summer. Great views of Granada and the Alhambra but no real ambience or vibe. Vendors with wares on blankets and people hanging out. Better at sunset. We dined at the Carmen Mirador de Aixa at sunset and the view was spectacular.

The square here is so crowded in the afternoons to see the Alhambra at sunset that most people don't actually get that great a view! There are other views scattered all over the Albaicin that are almost as good, and quieter. But it's worth a visit just to see the spectacle of the crowds and hippy hawkers...if you don't like...

Visit here in the late afternoon to get the best pictures of the Alhambra. There is a nice vibe on the plain with locals singing Flamenco songs, and hippies selling the wares. Don't bother to go and sit in nearby bars as it is the worst rip-off ever! Bad wine and rude bar tenders!

It's a hippy, peaceful, pretty place where you can see Alhambra from far. A perfect place where to take a photo.

Worth making your way up through the narrow streets of the Albayzin to the open area in front of the church. A lot of street activity here with musicians and people doing pictures. Great views of the Alhambra with the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the distance.

Tapas and ambiance are excellent. This where all the action is in Granada. Lots of hustle and bustle.

Nice view of the Alhambra, we went up by bus and came down walking in the middle of nice narrow streets and souvenir shops in the Albacin neighborhood. There is a restaurant at the Mirador, we didn’t try it but it definitely has the best view!!
