we went against the grain and went earlier in the day rather than later when i understand the light is better at sunset for the views of the alhambra. Still excellent though and a little market (selling pretty average products in my opinion sadly!) but what made it was the 2 guitar players singing and playing sat on the wall... More

Mirador San Nicholas offers fantastic views of the Alhambra with the Sierra Nevada mountains in the backdrop. Best to go around sunset to see deep orange hues on the Alhambra and the snow-capped peaks in the background. The city of Granada is in full view too.

Only a 15 minute walk from the centre of the city and you are in the bustling Mirador. you can find shops and cafes all around as well as some lovely walks to higher parts of the Albaicin. If you are in the area dont miss it!

We hiked first downhill and then steeply up to get to the mirador, but the views were well worth it, especially as morning light illuminated the Alhambra. Not for the weak, but if you're up for it you'll reap the rewards.

fun place to find but was crowded when we were there...5 p.m. The wall was lined with photographers and tripods. Walking the narrow streets to get to and from there was more fun than being there.

We have been living in Granada now for 6 weeks, originally from Australia. Our apartment is situated directly under the Alhambra and our Spanish school is opposite, in the Albaicin district, so our daily trek to class involves searching for that best view of the Alhambra and getting 'the' photo has become rather a daily habit. True, the vista of... More

The San Nicolas church is an interesting sight as is the city view. I really enjoyed the people from all over the world visiting, selling, singing, playing and soaking up the atmosphere.

Well worth the visit to take some spectacular photos of the Alhambra! There were a few stalls set up when we went last weekend as well as some Flamenco from gypsies who sat around to sing to the delighted tourists!

Once you manage to ascend the hill and find it, it has a lovely view. There's a public garden, as well as a number of restaurants at the place. Also note the Granada mosque at this place, (it looks like one of the churches).
