Climb the hill to the Mirador to get the best view of the Alhambra! The square has a fun and lively atmosphere, full of locals, tourists, buskers, music, etc. Try to go about an hour before sunset so you can see the Alhambra by day and by night. Just below the Mirador, there are several tapas bars and restaurants, some... More

One of the best views of the Alhambra and absolutely breath taking, if you don't take a photo you are crazy. Go to the bars straight on under the tunnel rather than the ones you can see because if you go under the tunnel you see many little bars with good tapas.

Way up on a hill. It is an amazing place for pictures with a wider view of the city as far as your eyes can see and also a beautiful view of the Alhambra at night with all the lights on.

Lots of little stalls selling jewellery and touristy stuff. Good viewing platform for the Alhambra complex and over the town. Lots of steepish cobbled streets and bars.

It's a hike. It's filled with tourists. And it is really beautiful. A breathtaking spot that also has lots of nice little booths set up to shop in as well as buskers. Not to be missed. And worth the trip up the hill!

This is a beautiful view of the Alhambra and the city of Granada. This is a must go and walk up by the street to go there. It is good exercise. Must go.

Great place to take photos, but not much else to do there. Walking distance from the city centre and had buses going by frequently
