Great place to view the Alhambra and part of the city. Not that steep to get to. A nice viewing platform with telescopes. Was quite busy with people selling goods and some buskers. We unfortunately didn't get the bright blue skies we were hoping for!...More

This is the best view of the Alhambra and surrounds, it is definitely worth visiting to take the best pictures in the city.

It takes quite some steps of Carrera del Darro, but totally worth the effort. Whilst arriving there you might feel thirsty....have a drink at El Huerto de Juan Ranas. Not cheap but amazing views.

this is the place to take gorgeous picture of the Alhambra. Try to visit in the evening, that way you can get a beautiful sunset in the background.

This square was busy with musicians and other just enjoying the space. The classic view across the city to the Alhambra, with the Sierra Nevada behind, did not disappoint. Consider getting the bus (No.31) up from the city centre as the little lanes are steep.

This is a great viewpoint of the Alhambra. Even on a rainy day in November there was a guy beautifully playing classical guitar on the plaza. There is a minibus stop right below the plaza if you don't want to walk here from your hotel....More

I've visited this place at various times (10am - 10:30pm). It's always full of people, of life, of music, of dancing. And a great view of the Alhambra to be had, too!

This a a place in the city, open for everyone at every time. We went uphill by bus but it's worth to go downhill as the quarter is very interesting.
