The Mirador de San Nicolas is a "must" - from here you have the most amazing views of the Alhambra Palace and all the roof tops. There are lots of locals visiting this area as well as tourists. On the day we went, also some live music.

It's a Mirador situated at the top of the historic neighbourhood of Albayzin. I recommand to visit at night. Its enjoyable to walk over through the streets from la Gran Via to the place.

Why this is more well known, at least in the uk, is beyond me. There really aren't words to describe the stunning view and atmosphere you get from this place. Stick this in your bucket list and get to see it. You need to do that to really appreciate this place fully.

Mostly known for the good view at the Alhambra but also a nice square for food or drinks. It's a very well visited viewing point so it's recommended to be there early, in time to see the sunset

Pretty park. Go to only remaining Mosque in Granada next door! Beautifully restored. Location where Bill Clinton took his family for sunset because it impacted him.

We watched the sun set from the Mirador and have wonderful photos of the Alhambra before and after the sun set. Well worth the walk up or taxi ride up.

It was quite a tedious climb up to the top but definitely worth it! We took about half and hour to forty five mins (including stopping at the caves) to get to mirador de san nicolas. When at the top , it was pretty crowded with tourists and buskers- a Vibrant atmosphere. Would definitely recommend paying a bit more for... More
