Great view of the Alhambra. You can pick out a restaurant for dinner with a view while you're there. Keep in mind, though, that it's a steep walk up.

There is a nice atmosphere in the small square in front of the church. The best part is the view of Alhambra and the mountains at the back. The thought "how this place must have looked years back" makes you admire Alhambra more and more.

The climb from the main street of Granada is worth it….its steppe and cobblestoned which harks back to another century but the view at the top from the square is worth it….but beware when i was there i saw 3 pickpockets in action making the most of the tourists occupied with the view across the valley so keep an eye...

We enjoyed the place during a whole evening. The people around are very relaxed. The view on the Alhambra on the next hill is spectacular.

Delightful small plaza for views, drinks, restaurants, flamenco guitarists, local artisans, tourists. Accessible by uphill walk on skinny stone streets, bus #31, and taxi from city center.

The plaza is very popular with tourists. This attracts artists but also thiefs. The scenery over the city is amazing. Walk up and later down through the small streepte with cobble stones of the Albacin.

If you have the time, use an afternoon to walk through the World Heritage Site, the Albaicin, on your way up the hill to Plaza de San Nicolas. Travel the alleyways and sit at the plazas in this historic area. Visit Sacramonte, or just sit at a table on San Miguel Bajo, or book a dinner reservation at one of... More

This spot is the perfect vantage point to take picture of the Alhambra! Try to go there half an hour before sunset (as you need to walk past small cobbled streets with slight uphill) and see the beautiful mountain, alhambra, the town, and the sun tinting the skies from golden light to pink.. simply surreal!

You will not be disappointed by the view on a clear breezy early evening. The sun sets behind you, putting the Alhambra in a warm glow. Head up starting with the San Gregorio street and then onto Gatos and then to Maria de Miel. At the top of Maria de Miel you will be on Passeo de san Nicholas. Take... More
