Worth seeing, have a glass of wine and tapas and enjoy the lively scene and people watching. There are so many places to shop, and pastries to sample nearby, its nice just to wander and look at all the quaint spots.

It takes about 10 minutes to walk up Albaycin to reach the Plaza San Nicolas. The walk up the little narrow streets, and finally the view from the plaza are beautiful.

While enjoying the sunset at Plaza de San Nicolas and the viewpoint area, we decided to pop in St Nicolas church and are SO glad we did - it was a highlight of our trip thanks to an enthusiastic and kindly volunteer who took his time sharing the history of the cathedral and hopes for restoration. For 2 euro we... More

A charming square that's fairly quiet by day and comes alive at night. There was a small market one evening with locals gathering to chat, play guitars and sing. Bring your camera to get the 'classic' shots of the Alhambra and watch the changing shades of light as the sun sets.

If you are in Granada it is a must, and the views rarely dissapoint! Bustling with people, artists, music, you name it. Often religious processions pass on an evening also. There are some amazing restaurants in the area that are coupled with some of the best views of the Alhambra. A nice place in the day or evening, and always... More

But as the weather was not very sunny we will have to return to see the sun set over the Alhambra which from this point... More

Best view in town; can get busy at the weekend; and the locals like their cannabis cigarettes; so if that doesn't put you off it is well worth the visit.

The plaza in front of the church has amazing views of Alhambra and the usual assortment of musicians and vendors.... the views from the top of the bell tower are worth the entry fee.

It is a nice and relaxing plaza in the top of the city with the best views of the Alhambra. Not of easy access. There is a lot of street selling but is not anoying at all. Surounding bars are not cheap at all.
