What an incredible view of the environs. We took a cab up but once there walked around and then down the hills. It's a lot easier going down than up but this is another must see when you are in Granada. Lots of little shops and restaurants. You get a taste of what life is like in Granada today. Wished...

This was the best place we found to get some great photos of the Alhambra with the snowy Sierra Nevada behind as the sun went down.

Fantastic walk up to a magnificent view. Even with two small children was easy as you can pick your own way up through narrow streets and steps. Little places to get refreshment along the way. Beautiful.

There were hundreds of people wanting to take photos of the scenery which is understandable so you have to wait until people move so you can get a free spot.

This mirador (lookout) has one of the most beautiful and privileged views of the Alhambra. It is surrounded by some restaurants, a church and the rest of the streets of the Albaicín neighborhood. The Mirador de San Nicolás is an absolutely must visit, especially by night to admire the lights on the Alhambra.

It's quite a walk uphill to reach the Mirador, but it's worth paying a visit. Next door there is a Mosque, which, honestly, is probably not worth your time.

This is a lovely and beautiful site. We took a taxi up and walked back down. The view of the Alhambra is spectacular; access to religious sites is somewhat restricted based on time of day and day of the week, but the lunch (al menu) is fantastic at any of the small outdoor cafes. Walking back down through the ancient... More

You can take the Albaicin bus up to here during the day, sit on the wall in peace and watch the stunning view.. or go up at night when the Alhambra is all lit up. If there's snow on the Sierra Nevada, this glows behind it

This is one of the top spots to see the entire Alhambra ( including Generalife ) . And yet very quiet and authentic. Our guide took us there . Join the FeelTheCity Walking tour!
