A great viewing area in the Old part of the town, best to get the local bus, as the streets are narrow and extremely twisty, so a bit hazardous for pedestrians. It was great early morning and in the early evening jast as the sun was setting, for getting great photos. You can also go up into the church tower,... More

We loved the energy there. Guitar players, restaurants, vendors, jewelry, bars, and a beautiful view of Alhambra

Best view in town!you get to see the entire Alhambra and the mountains behind it.

Very popular for sightseeing so you may need some... More

Long hard walk up lots of steps but well worth it for the fantastic views. If visiting to see the church be warned it shuts at 3pm or it did on the day we were there

This is a great spot to see the entire Alhambra from the opposite side of the river valley. High up inside the Albaicin area, the plaza in front of the church is a busy spot for sightseers and buskers. Very busy! I suggest you do not eat here for the fod but in front of the Plaza are some restaurants... More

The plaza is situated on a hill in front of Alhambra. So you can take photo with the whole castle :) Also if weather is nice you can see snow on the mountains. It's really woth visiting.

If you have the time, sit down in this plaza with your favorite coffee and enjoy people watching. You might even strike up a conversation. The people are very friendly and enjoy talking about their city.

Up the hill to the lookout point at Sunset gives you one of the most exquisite sights on earth. The Alhambra with snow capped mountains as a backdrop. Local 'gypseys' singing and playing the guitar create the atmosphere and it's all like a dream. Despite there being many people, it was quiet - everyone seemed truly in awe.
