Great place to visit during the day for views of the Alhambra. Went back in the evening to see the Alhambra all lit up. Take the hop on/off train otherwise it's a bit of a walk uphill.

Amazing viewpoint to Alhambra. Often with musicians playing traditional Spanish mucic! In general a nice area.

This was difficult to find. The Hop on Hop off train dropped us off at the end of a street but there were no signs. Basically you take the first stairway up and keep going up. There was a lovely square and that classic view of the Alhambra. There were bars in the square. A good place for a lunch... More

I walked up here, bought a couple cheap beers from the alimentation on the street below, and watched as the sun set over Granada. Beautiful view of the city and the Alhambra with the Sierra Nevada in the background. The gypsies performing flamenco music made this evening even more romantic.

The lookout offers a postcard perfect view of the Alhambra from the other hill. A place to sit, eat, relax and enjoy the scenery before you.

I stopped at the restaurant for lunch after taking pictures of La Alhambra. I had tomatoes and cheese, which were overpriced. Beer was colds and the outside area was very pleasant. I'd explore other areas for lunch if I was in this area again.

It's quite a long uphill walk (as is most of Grenada!) but you do have nice views from up there. Worth the effort.

this is the phrase bill clinton said when after he came to Granada for the first time. some years later he came back with his wife Hilary. In fact this is likely one of the best view points in the world.
