“Worth the walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Try to visit in the daytime as it is very busy in the evenings. Locals are selling their wares and people play and dance flamenco. The views are stunning

“Worth the Walk Up!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

After a few tapas bars, we walked up to the area known as Mirador San Nicolas. Our trusty iPhone and a very friendly and helpful fellow guided us up and through the narrow streets of the Albaycin. Once at the top, we enjoyed incredible views of the Alhambra;it up at night along dozens of others. A guitar played and a singer sang traditional Spanish Flamenco-like songs.

It was a great atmosphere and certainly worth the walk up.

“too many people”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

There are plenty of other places to watch the sunset without sharing it with hundreds of other tourists. The view is superb but you have to look through lots of other people

“Great evening pre-dinner activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Good fun watching the Alhambra at sunset. Plenty of buskers, acrobats and mixed groups hanging about. Recommend enjoying an Alhambra beer while doing so.

“lovely view at night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Went at night and it was a bit foggy, but still quite a view. The surrounding streets were quiet on the chilly January evening we were there, which added to the experience. It felt like we were in our own small fairy tale. Walk down the hill into the plaza nuevo and enjoy the surrounding Albayzin district with its windy streets.
