I will strongly recommend to visit this place But choose the evening time. And spent there around 1 hour. By visting in ev evening you will notice the great change of view of night with lights switched on.

A bit difficult to find - a few signs would not hurt if you climb through the Albaycin, but definitely worth while once you get there!

Worth the climb for the amazing view if the Alhambra on the hill opposite - even better if you climb the bell tower!

the sunset here is just such a romantic and breathtaking experience. Here you can see all the city, and have a beautiful view to Alhambra.

Perfect view to sunset and night-view over Granada and Alhambra, but Plaza was over crowded with tourists and almost all of them had that stupid selfie-sticks. Pity

One of the best points to contemplate the Alhambra (though not the only one). It's hard to climb up, but you have a minibus that takes you there in few minutes (line C1, starts on Plaza Nueva). The viewpoint is always busy, except in the early morning, and has a great atmosphere there. The most beautiful views are at sunset... More

Great view point of the Alhambra, you can get some great photos across the town from here. Well worth the walk up through Albayzin.

This is a standard stop on all organised tours, so tranquillity can be hard to find, which is a good reason to come early or late.

A lovely lookout point across to the Alhambra and city itself. Gets very busy at sunset and you have to arrive very early to get the best views.

This is a very popular lookout point in Granada as it looks out onto a great view is of the Alhambra and its surrondings...very picturesque. Usually you will find people playing the spanish guitar and/or siging, and selling hand maed objects to turist, etc.. A nice place to relax for a bit and take in the stunning view.
