Magical but always crowded with lively tourists, unfortunately, which kind of dampers the magic. That being said, it is a place when one can gaze on the splendor that is the Alhambra, in all its eerie and surreal grandeur.

It really worth climbing up to the viewpoint. The view to the Alhambra and overlooking Granada is a must on this stop. Local artesanato is sold there and also the mix between tourists and locals create a good vibe.

This is basically a viewpoint for the Alhambra. The entire Alhambra complex with the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background makes the perfect photo. We also experienced great spring sun, youngsters performing musicals, artists preparing and selling paintings and of course drunk locals !!!

Day or night, this viewpoint is the best to admire the Alhambra. During the day there are flamenco guitarists, singers and dancers to enchant the audience, also gypsies and artists. Lovely vibe!

Exhausting hike to get there but well worth the effort - the whole meal was excellent. Not cheap but friendly staff, great views and for the quality of the food still good value.

Really worth a visit at sunset to see the colours of the stone built Alhambra and the mountains change as the sun sets

We went to this lookout point during the day time because it certainly does have an awesome view of the alhambra and the Sierra Nevada, however by sunset it is so uncomfortably jam packed with tourists that you won’t be able to get decent pictures....More

If you go to Granada, first you can go to The Alhambra, after that to Mirador de San Nicolas to see The Alhambra from the other side, nice restaurants, all walkable.

We happened upon this overlook. You can see Alhambra from this site and the Sierra Nevada mountains. So incredibly beautiful.

Walked up through the Albaicin district of the city - a fairly steep but interesting walk which took about 20 minutes although we weren’t rushing. We visited at about 12pm on. Thursday and we were expecting huge crowds from the reviews that we had read...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.

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