The walk up the narrow streets to Mirador de San Nicolas may be a bit long - especially on a hot day, but when you get there you are rewarded with a spectacular view of the Alhambra and the city. Bring a map (we did), as I imagine it is quite easy to get lost on your way up. We... More

After a tour of the Alhambra, we decided to go to the Mirador and take the bus, instead of driving there. The transport system to the Mirador is efficient. All you need is to change bus at the Plaza Nuevo and either walk up to the Mirador or just take another bus. Lots of photo opps from the top. Take... More

There is a bar Kiki right by the Mirador. Get your brunch there. The staff is way nice and my French cheese tortilla was 10 of 10.

If you like rooftop views of cities, this is certainly a destination for you - a sort of Andalusian Montmartre.

You must be at this point if you want to see and experience a glorious sunset view over the city and facing the Alhambra and the nearby landscape. you can easily start from this point and walk around albaycin and Sacramento for next 2-3 hours before heading back to the city from the other side.

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...
