It's a bit hard to find, since there are no signs helping you to navigate the old town lanes. Once you reach it, you'll be glad that you struck out like all the explorers before you! Recommended.

It was a fairly wet day but the climb up to the viewing point was so worth it! Even with limited visibility you could see the magical city views!

This is one of the best viewpoints in town for the Alhambra Castle. Great with Sierra Nevada in the back in a good clear Blue skies day.

If you wander around Granada much, you can take a self guided tour and see the city from this vista/viewpoint. Usually there is musicians playing up there, Nice view of Alhambra.

It is worth the walk up the big hill for the views at the top. There was a Spanish singer and other people trading their wares at the lookout. Great wines of Alhambra and Granada.
