Fairly steep walk up to San Nicholas Mirador, which is a small plaza that looks toward the Alhambra and down toward the city of Granada. Incredible views for photo opportunities but the sun can be tricky. We were there around 5pm. Anywhere from maybe 50-150 people there at one time. Some vendors selling tchotchke, some gypsy musicians and some cute dogs. Some quaint restaurants in the plaza and one with an amazing view on the cliff side of the street. Walk next door into a beautiful garden and the Mosquita Mayor de Granada.

It was a long slow windy walk to the top and Plaza San Nicolas, but well worth the effort. The view across to the Alhambra Palace, lit up in the evening sky was wonderful. The people in the Plaza all seemed happy, enjoying the view, and there was a very companionable feel to it all.

Plaza de San Nicolas is a plaza you'd be glad to walk to, although it's situated high up on a hill. It's around the Adjibe (or Cistern) of San Nicolas, which is a historic water reservoir that has been there for a very long time! And there is also the Church of the same name, which was closed at the time so we could not go inside. The views from the Plaza are stupendous! You get to see a whole lot of monuments and a variety of sights that you ordinarily might miss out on. The most impressive is, of course, the Alhambra.

When you are in Granada, you should definitely experience one sunrise or sunset while being at the plaza de San Nicolas! Just astonishing, don't forget to bring your camera or selfie stick ;-).

You have everything here. Church if you’re Catholic, Mosque if you’re Muslim, a stunning view, some vendors selling souvenirs, and a few good restaurants. El Balcón de San Nicolás is my recommendation since the drinks had a reasonable price, and the breathtaking view was free of charge.
Unfortunately, the Iglesia de San Nicilás due to renovation is closed until 28.Febr. 2018. Maybe the Mosque kept its doors closed too from sympathy. Don’t worry; the view is there.

Was simply gorgeous at night time, had the best view of the Al hambra and all of grenada. Doesn't show up to well on a camera. If you come at night time be mindful that it is difficult to get a taxi. You can get a taxi number to call but if you dont speak spanish then it can be troublesome. another taxi driver helped us book one... god bless his soul

I went this place every night and I would continue to go there if I was still in Granada. Forget the Flamenco dancers, forget buying the cheap souvenirs, forget about spending th enight on some expensive eats. Go to this plaza every night and listen to the guys play music and possibly have someone dance and tip these people. From here, not only is the music and the dancing what real Flamenco is all about, but you also have a great night view of the Alahambra. This is a must go to when in the city.

If you are in Granada don't miss visiting Albayzin and San Nicolas view point! During the day there are a lot of tourists trying to take best pic of the city and Alhambra and at night a lot of young people get around and play guitar, singing and drinking so it is very interesting!

This the spot where you can watch the sun go down over the Alhambra... but it was pretty crowded. Combine with a walk thru Albayzin and enjoy a refreshing drink.
