This is a beautiful spot to look out over the city of Granada. Make sure to take the time to visit in the morning and at sunset. Highly recommended.

The beauty of this viewpoint is undeniable, with the Alhambra and the Generalife face to face, the city at its feet, and the magnificent Sierra Nevada behind.

Very nice view to Granada. Maybe best place to see sunset and alambra. Good place for taking fotos not so many tourist.

We started here for a lovely view of Granada. You really can see everything. There were plenty of families and couples here taking photos. It's a great stop for a little breather on your way up the many hills and stairs. If you don't appreciate...More

There are several miradors scattered throughout Granada, and while they don't haave the buzz of the the San Nicolas Mirador, they offer aan opportunity to quietly admire the views of Granada. One such is San Cristobal. The walk here will take you through some intersting...More

It was a bit of a walk, but we were rewarded with beautiful, panoramic views of Granada. We were on a large bus, but you can take a taxi or lots of minivans available. Musicians entertained for just a tip.

Super views of surroundings - accessible via taxi or mini-bus (off-on tours). Some nice restaurants in the area as well. We also had the chance to watch some "street flamenco" and listen to some good local music.

It's a hike to the top of Albayzin neighbourhood where the Mirador de San Cristobal sits and while the view towards the city of Granada is decent the view up to the Alhambra is partially blocked by rooftops. If you want the Alhambra view, best...More

You can walk up to here from the city in 15 minutes if you are fit enough. If not take a bus or Taxi as views are worth it.

Questions & Answers

We are going next fall... The first day we plan on going to San Nicolas for sunset views of Alhambra followed by dinner and show at Jardine de Zoraya Think we will take the Tourist Train that allows On and off and go to Alhambra from Catedral stop After Alhambra, do the Paseo Trieste Then hop off at near San Nicolas (Placeta de Abad?) Walk to Plaza Larga Then walk to Mirador San Cristobal Then walk to Plaza de San Miguel Bajo to get back on the bus for Catedral, etc 1. Is this a reasonable plan, especially for Second day - Full Day 2. Is the walk mentioned within Albaicin (San Nicolas - Plaza Larga - San Cristobal - Plaza San Miguel) "tough" for seniors like CLIMBING, etc though with several stops for "look around" On Google maps it does NOT look too hard, But those maps do not show ELEVATIONS Watching Albaicin videos on YouTube is "SCARY" But, IMO, Granada IS Alhambra and Albaicin????? All advice is welcome Thanks
