Visited day and night. Loved the views over the city and the Alhambra. The buskers, singing and playing guitar added to the atmosphere. Bar/restaurant (Juan Ranas) with lovely terrace garden just below is worth a visit.

Walk up through the Albaicin. By the time you reach the Mirador de San Nicolas you’ll need a break. It’s a great spot to sit in the sun. There are some vendors but they’re not obnoxious. Relax and enjoy it.

This is not a well kept secret so the plaza is packed out especially at sunset. The view is fantastic, but it is hard to get to the front of the crowd for an unobstructed look. Perfect conditions for pickpockets

Lovely place to see the Alhambra, especially out up at night. Bustling square full of tourists with some artisan stalls. Loved the walk up there thru the narrow streets of the old Arab quarter...

We took bus #32 up to Plaza San Nicolas and then walked the few steps up a staircase to hit the Plaza and see the view. Though the view was stunning, the area is so full of tourists and street vendors (who packed up very...More

I would recommend the coach- Alsa. Super cheap, can book online and takes around the same duration.
