All reviews worth the climb sierra nevada great view of the alhambra bell tower walk up san nicolas worth the effort narrow streets alhambra palace nice walk take photos tapas viewpoint buskers plaza tourists dusk
This is my favourite place in all of Granada. The ambience and crowd usually invlove a busker or musician adding to the feel. The views of the alhambra and sierra are unbeatable. The morroccan restaurant in the corner is fantastic!
Stayed in Albaicin for a night and walked up to this Mirador at sunset.
Didn't tour the church as it was getting late but if you go in the afternoon there are some lovely little bars around the Plaza for a pit stop or lunch...More
After we checked in at our B&B in Albayzin, the frontdesk person reccomended to check out the Mirador. We made our way up through the narrow streets on a rainy evening and there was a guitarist playing Spanish music on the guitar. Nice and peaceful...More

Great place to view the Alhambra and part of the city. Not that steep to get to. A nice viewing platform with telescopes. Was quite busy with people selling goods and some buskers. We unfortunately didn't get the bright blue skies we were hoping for!...More
When I call Mirador de San Niicolas "the Hill of Magic", I don't refer to the poor, unfortunate juggler, who kept falling off his rope, while trying to display his "skills"!.
You think you have arrived in Heaven on Mirador de San Nicolas. Opposite, the...More
When I try to plan my route on Google, it's not showing the C1 or C2 buses and telling me I have to walk essentially all the way. I know there's been recent changes to the bus system in Granada. Anyone know why Google wouldn't be showing routes to Mirador de San Nicolas? I know I can take a taxi but I'd prefer to take the bus (and not walk the whole way). Thanks.

Albayzin vs. Mirador de San Nicolas (3 Replies)
If you have limited time, which is a better option to go to Albayzin or Mirador de San Nicolas? Our priority is to see the Alhambra lit up at night from afar, probably have dinner and wander around a neighborhood after. Which do you recommend?

Justin: The Mirador de San Nicolas is located in the Albayzin barrio. Yes, it has the best views of the Alhambra.

My family of four (myself, wife and two young teen boys) will be in Granada for two nights and one full day the week after Easter, and I have mapped out the following itinerary for which I would grealt appreciate any comments (all Alhambra tickets already been purchased) : Arrive Wednesday 4pm at hotel near Alhambra; check in, taxi to visit Cathedral and Royal Chapel; dinner near Chapel; to Alhambra for 10 pm nighttime-Nasrid Palace entry; next morning, back to Alhambra with general tickets...More

That sounds pretty reasonable, but just a couple of comments: By the time you've checked in and got out again, you may be struggling to fit the cathedral, royal chapel and dinner in before heading back up to the Alhambra for the night visit. I would leave either the chapel or the cathedral until the following day. I personally prefer the royal chapel, but some people love the cathedral as well. Also, bear in mind that many restaurants don't open until 8:30-9:00 pm, which doesn't leave you...More
