This is one of the best viewpoints in town for the Alhambra Castle. Great with Sierra Nevada in the back in a good clear Blue skies day.

Its one of the view point in Granada, but it always full with people, specially during sunset time. It give you a perfect view of Alhambra from a distance.

If you wander around Granada much, you can take a self guided tour and see the city from this vista/viewpoint. Usually there is musicians playing up there, Nice view of Alhambra.

It is worth the walk up the big hill for the views at the top. There was a Spanish singer and other people trading their wares at the lookout. Great wines of Alhambra and Granada.

Great views, most people sit on the walls which makes it difficult to get a good selfie! Place has been taken over by crusties and their dogs on strings. Stench of weed and droning insessent flamenco takes away something

Yes, the views of Alhambra were good at this point but the best viewing point was the Abadía of Sacromonte. It's quite the climb to the Mirador.

It is well-worth visiting this mirador as the views of the Alhambra Palace and the city of Granada are amazing. The atmosphere is great too with locals playing their guitars and selling crafts. Beware of pickpockets as someone attempted to get into our friends bag...More
