This little closed church is at the top of the hill overlooking the Alhambra and Granada. Came up here as part of the Walk in Granada Sacromonte tour. It took over an hour from Plaza Nueva and the way up was mostly twisting, very narrow...More

It's a local spot for young people who want to lunch, drink or chill, with the best point of view of the city. You must go there to see the Alhambra down your feet !

A great hike with amazing views and not really that far. A nice workout with a nice place to rest while you take in all the views.

Not for the faint of calf... the 'easy' route up to this popular viewing spot will work those legs! Take the stairs up to this secluded spot to get the best views across Granada and Sierra Nevada at sunset. Beware of the odd roaming dog;...More

We didn't see inside, like most people we were there for the view, which was excellent. Beware that there is lots of climbing and steps if that is a problem for you. It can be accessed by car from the back ... not sure about...More

This is another must do in Granada. It may be challenging due to it is a step climb but you can combine with the walk to Sacromonte enjoying the peculiar atmosphere of this "barrio". We arrived and wait one hour for the sunset. It was...More
