I read several reviewers suggesting this is extremely difficult to walk to. Unless you really struggle to walk, I'd disagree. It is an uphill walk and there are some cobbled streets as is typical in this area but it's not far and well worth it. Alternatively the city train goes past this area. The area is well worth visiting and... More

After a nice walk through Albayzin, we went up to this place, and we were shocked by the splendid panorama toward Alhambra. The view is good at every season, and especially at the time of sunset. Great place to visit together with Albayzin.

The Mirador has great views of Alhambra. It can be reached from Albaicyn on foot (about 15-20 minutes up hill) - highly recommended - or by taking the C1 bus. By sunset, the Alhambra view is even more impressive.

Would be the perfect spot to see the Alhambra at Sunset. The church and mosque are worth a visit and it is great see the market and cafes of the Albyscin.there were musicians performing when we were there.

Probably the best view point, especially at sunset, for the Alhambra with the Sierra Nevada as a backdrop.

It is easily accessible by public bus - C1. It can be crowded for sunset. But the sun did not set behind the alhambra. Sunrise, is rising from the side of the mountain - Sierra Nevada

This is a must go spot in Granada. The Alhambra views from here are just breathtaking. Also worth to walk down from the Mirador to the city center through the Albalaicin streets.

This is a lovely spot for the views of Granada and the surrounding area. The Bell tower is a must, and get the sense of the old Granada, stalls and music in the street makes the atmosphere perfect.
