It’s a good walk up the the Mirador, but worth the effort as the views of the Alhambra are fantastic. Good eating places to sit and take in the view with a couple fo cold beers.

Although not as spectacular as the view from higher Miradors, at least this one is fairly easily reached on foot, or indeed accessible by bus with just a short walk up to the viewing patio. Seemed quite lively at various times of day.

The plaza has a beautiful view of Alhambra. Nice place to watch the sunset. Probably the most touristy of the places we visited, complete with street performers and pop up chachka vendors.

The best spot to see Granada City and Alhambra for free. Located in Hill of Albaicin area. About 300m away from the city center. The best time to get there is before the sunset, to see Alhambra's magical side, while the sky is changing its...More
