You will enjoy evenings while you see the sun goes down behind La Alhambra. La Alhambra is in front of Mirador de San Nicolás, so, the picture is amazing. I recommend to everyone to visit it and to go there with someone how knows the zone and the way to arrive at the top of the city.

Ever since Bill Clinton visited, as US President, this has been at the top of the list of things to do in Granada. The sunset is astonishing from here, as are the clouds of marijuana smoke, from those that 'hang out' here. There are also lots of stalls selling lovingly crafted crap. My advice here is to go for the... More

..of Granada and the Alhambra. One can see all of the elements of GRANADA from this wonderful spot! The size and scope of the Alhambra are impressive from this view, and one can also see the cave community of Sacromonte, the Albaicin, and downtown.

We took the C1 bus from Plaza Nueva to Mirador de San Nicolas. The bus ride itself was interesting. The bus navigates through very small and winding roads. The panoramic view of Alhambra was worth the visit. We went there after dinner. Later in the evening they light up Alhambra and that was worth waiting for. It is crowded at... More

Famous by the president Clinton, right across the Alhambra, on top of the Albayzin district, is a great spot to enjoy the sunset and the view. A bit crowded but worth the visit.

I've been here many times, as I used to live in Granada. This is the best view of the Alhambra, and it's located in the heart of the Albayzin. It's now easier than ever to get to the Mirador, as there are signs pointing you the way throughout the neighborhood.

It can be a taxing walk in 40 degree heat,but the climb to the top is rewarded by the most spectacular views of the Alhambra,and Granada. It really is a site to behold,and if you do it just before sunset then you will have one lifes great memories.

Beautiful view point over the city, quite challenging to walk to as it is uphill cobbles and was over 35 degrees even in the evening - my advice, Segway or get the C1 bus from Plaza Nueva
