It is an idyllic place when there are few people. Although it is forced to go if you visit Granada. Going up to the Albaicín there are a thousand corners where the Alambra is seen equal or better than from the viewpoint. By the way those who dance flamenco in the viewpoint are 'painful' Es un sitio idílico cuando hay... More

The Mirador is next to St Nicholas church, and is considered the premier place to view the Alhambra from the Albayzin quarter. Lively, due to it's buskers and vendors, its a place where you can just sit and gaze upon the best palace complex in Andalusia.

The hike through the Albayzin up to this viewpoint is well worth it. The views across Granada and the Sierra Nevada are spectacular on a clear day and the sunsets are fantastic.

We took the hop on/hop off up to the Albaicín neighborhood and hopped off, following others on their way to this spot to view the Alhambra at sunset. Then we walked back through incredibly narrow streets of this neighborhood to the Plaza Nueva in the historic center of the city. Being February, it was cold (I neglected to bring a... More

Not to be missed spot for your photo of the Alhambra. Day or night. Often street entertainment around and restaurants nearby are good.

Probably the best views in Granada towards the Alhambra. Don't forget to walk the backstreets too. Try to go early as it gets busy during the day.

You want to see a great sunset and get the best pictures of Alhambra this is it. Although there is some construction going on and a lot of school kids running around noisily, don't miss this photo opportunity.

Situated just across the valley from the Alhambra this mirador offers panoramic views of the ancient citadel. Take a taxi or C2 bus form the city centre as it is quite a hike up (of course coming down is easy!)
