Great viewpoint to see that Alhambra and the city. If you don't want to walk up the steep streets a city bus will take you there.

A walk up through the Albaicin (or the little red bus) to the San Nicolas square is rewarded by one of the most pictured and painted views of the Alhambra Palace across the valley. Nearby bars and restaurants make the journey even more worth while.

We went in the morning (since we opted for sunset on our hotel balcony) and the views were amazing. Took a nice walk up to the gypsy caves in Sacromonte after- got "lost" since it is rather winding, but eventually found our way back. Wonderful morning.

The view from here is spectacular- especially at sunset! There was a very talented busker performing while I was there- made it even more enjoyable! It is a bit of a walk from downtown, so those of you with limited mobility would need a taxi.

This is a must if you go to Granada. The view across to the Alhambra is stunning and the atmosphere on the mirador can be superb (great flamenco guitar when I was there). You can catch one of the "C" buses up here if you don't fancy the climb.

Wonderful spot, view fantastic, spoilt by hippy vendors selling rubbish and the all pervading smell of pot. The hippy vendors spread their wares all over the seats leaving this weary 70 year old traveller nowhere to sit other than on the top of a wall. There is a restaurant with comfy sofas below which knows how to charge but what... More

Very unique location where many go to see the sunset with a fantastic view of Alhambra. This is a walking trip everyone capable of walking a little uphill should do while in Granada. Do not take a taxi as it is best to walk and enjoy the journey. There are several restaurants there (really expensive) that are just where you... More

A good walk up the crooked stairs …cannot get lost as you have to ascend till reaching the top. Plenty of tourists all trying to get the shot of the Alhambra provides a wonderful vista of the Palace nestled amongst the garden.

We stayed at a hotel near this Mirador and could easily walk here in less than 5 minutes. You get an excellent view of the Alhambra from here and at night, the lit-up Alhambra is magical. There are a couple of restaurants that overlook the Alhambra, where we had drinks next to the window. Surprisingly, they weren't very busy. In... More
