Really nice place from where you can see the Alhambra and Generalife. Just walking in the narrows streets is lovely, as you can stop to some nice coffee or restaurants which have nice cozy terrace. To do !

Very limited parking but should have read trip advisor first! From Alhambra this looks close but it a drive away, don't be fooled. The views of Alhambra are amazing and the square is a lovely place to relax and enjoy and ice cream. Didn't try the restaurants but a good selection with great views.

What a walk in the heat! But an amazing view. Lots of stuff going in the evening. Plenty of surrounding bars with free tapas with a drink. Perfect place to spend evening.

Walked up to the Mirador, but then paid to go up to the Bell Tower which is being fixed. The view is beautiful. Much betther than from the Mirador - the Mirador was way too crowded.

The first and best known vantage point for overlooking the Alhambra, it can get busy around sunset. There are several other less crowded and equally stunning points if you explore a little.

You must hike to this plaza, the view is amazing and the ambience of Granada. I really enjoyed being there even if the temperature was super hot. Usually there are people playing guitar and singing along. At night might be a bit too loud but it's great, where else will you get this flamenco ambience??

The +: right in front and at the altitude of the Alhambra with nothing between Great to take the whole site at once The -: many tourists so pretty difficult to take a good picture well balanced with no one on it The hint: if possible come in the afternoon to get the best light

The Mirador is a nice stop on a tour of the Albaizin. Lovely views of the Alhambra from the plaza out front and again from the bell tower.

The best place to see the Alhambra! The mountains behind set a wonderful view. The city is lovely and there are so many activities to do.
