“Don`t miss Sunset!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

This was a beautiful lookout and the Alhambra at sunset from here is spectacular. I recommend you walk up if you are able as the walk through the Albaicin was beautiful as well and the bus was VERY busy. All the travel books say to watch for pick pockets but we did not have any issues. Just be aware as you would anywhere and take only what is necessary with you. There are lots of people there for sunset so try to get there early to get a spot on the edge for viewing. Spectacular.

“Beautiful spot and worth the climb”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

The view of the Alhambra at sunset was spectacular. It was a bit of a hike from the bus stop, but well worth it.

“go for sunset”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

It's well worth the walk up the hill & there are a couple of bats/restaurants up there. Just remember that if you're there in the winter the sun sets far earlier than the restaurants open which is silly of the owners as they'd make a fortune!

“The best view of the Alhambra”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

It's quite a steep route to walk up to here (although you could take the 31 bus) but it's definitely worth it. The views across to the Alhambra is stunning and if you add some street musicians, cafes and bars, it's a great experience.

“Panoramic view”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Whilst the Alhambra close to is amazing, this is the place to visit to see it in it's entirety from the outside walls. There are restaurants here where you can have drinks or dinner and enjoy the stunning views. It is one of the highest points of the Albayzin, and is a steep walk uphill to get to it. The streets are cobbled so make sure you go in suitable shoes. It is a labyrinth of narrow streets, would recommend a daytime visit in order to enjoy the housing, although a nightie visit is ideal for a superb view if the Alhambra lit up in all its glory!
