This is the spot a majority of people visit to view the Alhambra (although I personally think there is a better view from Sacromonte). When we visited there was a local three-man band playing guitar and singing traditional songs and it was a fantastic soundtrack...More

It’s a short but a little steep climb up through the old town. Nothing really spectacular about the place. A few street traders trying to flog jewellery and leather ware at the viewing point and an annoying boom box blasting out a heavy beat.

Very nice atmosphere with great andaluz music background. From here, you can really admire the beauty of Granada and one of the best monument in the world: La Alhambra. Great experience

It is a fantastic place in the city where you can see the Arab, the Christian and the Jewish city, all at the same time in a beautiful environment. Sunsets are recommended. If you go to Granada after the Alhambra the most visited place ......More

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.
