Small plaza with some food and drinks available, but it’s the view over Alhambra and snowy mountains in the background, which is the main draw for vast majority of visitors. It definitely has the best landscape of all lookouts around the town. Gets very crowded...More

The view from this spot is beautiful, but it was so crowded (at night in November) that it was hard to see the view well. We ended up eating at a restaurant nearby and found that it was just as nice of a view, but...More

A pretty decent place to just sit, relax and take in the view of the city and the Alhambra. The views at night and during the day is just something that you can stare at for hours. There was a few restaurants and one or...More
