Made my mother and children trek up the steep alleyways all the way up. So worth it! Within sight is the magnificent Alhambra and Generalife, Sacromonte the whole of Granada at your feet and even a peep at the Sierra Nevada up yonder! Fantastic photo opportunity. Must do!

Outstanding views of the Alhambra Palace from this vantage point, The climb up is a bit steep and if you are frail you might be better taking a taxi but it's well worth the effort

Before you go to Alhambra, take a bus no 31 which will cost you 1.20 euro and go to Mirador de San Nicholas. You will get a fantastic view of Alhambra, Sierra Nevada and Granada City. We went there in the evening so we had the opportunity to view alhambra during the day and during sunset and during the night.... More

This is a great place to visit in the city to sit back and take in a view of the Alhambra nestled against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada, as others state, it is great to be here at sunset. But in fact anytime of day is the time to take in the this wonderous sight!! There's a collection of... More

it is a good place to go and drink as there is a few bars around the square, but the best time to get there is just before sunset and watch the sunset from there as there is usually performers on the site is a good way to see the sunset and enjoy flamenco!

This is a nice lively little square, with a great view of the Alhambra, a lot of souvenirs for sale and often some street performers. The best thing about this is the Alhambra view.

It is a nice place to visit, full of peace, the building is interesting and it has a great authentic patio; coming down from there you get to visit the Cuevas de Sacromonte, so Mirador de San Nicolas is the ideal point to get off the bus and walk around and discover the surroundings.

Many will come to the Mirador especially at about sunset to view the colors of the Alhambra but...The Church of San Nicolas which is also on the Plaza does not get a second view. The old church may not look like a historical piece of property but step inside and speak to the curators they will tell you stories and... More

The Mirador San Nicolás is busy from morning to night with tourists and locals alike enjoying the gorgeous view of the Alhambra. It's a somewhat rigorous hike up but bus #31 drops you off at the top. Have lunch or a snack at one of the restaurants nearby and then enjoy an easy walk back down through the Albayzin to... More

Love the view of Alhambra at San Nicholas Point. Best for sunrise or sunset views, but looks great any time of the day.
