“Beautiful Views”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Great views and atmosphere. Panoramic views of the city and Alhambra. We were on a walking tour of the old town with a very knowledgeable young lady called Zane.

“Great view, and a great walk to get there.”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

I have visited this mirador at various times of the day, and each time had something special about it.
Early in the morning, the Alhambra appears ghost-like and very atmospheric. During the day, you get the brightly-lit version. Toward dusk, red and orange colours start to creep in.
All of this with a backdrop of snow- capped mountains in the Sierra Nevada. And great views of Granada.
It´s not an easy walk to get to the mirador, quite steep, but take your time, and enjoy the winding streets of the Albycin, the like of which you may have seen in Morocco.

“A great view of Alhambra and Granada”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

If you wanna see Alhambra from the outside, this is the place to go. If you're looking for some amusement, you'll have much fun there.. If you wanna get closer to God, you'll find the Church of San Nicolas and the Mezquita de Granada. A great place within Albayzin.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The best view on the Alhambra, the Sierra Nevada and the city. It's worth climbing all the Alabycin streets to enjoy the Mirador. You have to see it to understand!

“Camera spot”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Plaza at the Mirador de San Nicolas has the most wonderful views of the Alhambra from the outside. Great vistas of the city below as well. And while you are at the Mirador you are only steps away from Plaza Larga, the heart of the Albaicin.
