The +: right in front and at the altitude of the Alhambra with nothing between Great to take the whole site at once The -: many tourists so pretty difficult to take a good picture well balanced with no one on it The hint: if possible come in the afternoon to get the best light

The Mirador is a nice stop on a tour of the Albaizin. Lovely views of the Alhambra from the plaza out front and again from the bell tower.

The best place to see the Alhambra! The mountains behind set a wonderful view. The city is lovely and there are so many activities to do.

Climbed up to this to get the obligatory panorama photo of the Alhambra complex. The views were nice but there are far too many people up there so if you want uninterrupted photo taking then I would go a little bit further down ans stand on a wall to get pictures as good

We wait sunset long time. However we found nothing special. Avoid this trip or this hike. Visit other places in Granada.

I'd advise you try and get there just before sunset. The square housing the church has artists playing authentic Spanish folk songs. Bars around and below help quench the thirst you WILL build up should you decide to walk up. It gives a splendid view of The Alhambra. Please note there is NO PUBLIC CONVENIENCE.

Excellent view of Granada and The Alhambra. A nice reastaurant/bar there as well where one can have a drink with complementary tapas and easy to find. A great place to see the sunset.
