“A wondrous view of Alhambra”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

It is one of the most stunning sights to see the Alhambra across from you. I went in the early morning to escape the crowds and words just can't capture the sight.

“Amazing View and Culture Experience”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

I am studying abroad in Granada and have already visited this place multiple times. Not only do you get an amazing view of Granada itself, but The Alhambra too! I would suggest going during the week because there are so many people there on the weekends and it is hard to get a good picture. There are people that sell paintings and jewelry and musicians playing the guitar or according sometimes too. My favorite time I went was on Wednesday at 4:30 and it was perfect. It is free of charge and the walk there is interesting and beautiful too!

“A view to taske the breath away”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Yes it is a steep climb up there, but what a reward, especially in the winter sun, with the countryside laid out as far as the eye can see. Snow on the mountains too!

“Mirador”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

The Mirador de San Nicolas is a famous viewpoint from which to see the Alhambra and the city, generally. I really enjoyed it especially at night when the Alhambra was floodlit. One problem was that the Albaycin can be a little tricky to get around. In order to reach the mirador de San Nicolas, you had best go through the Puerta de Elvira and walk all the way up the Cuesta de la Alhacaba (a street),and when you get to the Plaza Larga, you must turn right and pass through a small arch.

“Incredible”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Incredible views, and the walk up is lovely through the little streets of Granada! The view of the Alhambra gives you an appreciation for how massive the fortress is and an amazing view of the city as well.
