Too bad the sunset didn't match our timing that day. Loved the atmosphere as many gathered to watch the sunset over Alhambra

Called here on our Get the Guide guided tour. Fantastic views of the city especially early evening when the sun goes down.

Gets crowded when coach trips arrive so head up earlier in the day for coolness and quietness - worth the walk

We walked through Albaycin to the top to Mirador San Nicolas. The view was breathtaking and there was a nice atmosphere at the viewpoint. We highly recommend this place.

Worth the climb for a wonderful view of the Alhambra. The winding streets on the way up are very nice. Buskers at the top are cool also.

This is the best location to view the Alhambra. It looks magical from this point. For us the best time to go there was just before dinner. The light and temperature are perfect then.

The view is very nice, I recommand it at night ! You can get a nice icecream close by. However sometimes to many people (always the tourists group)

We walked up the narrow streets rather than take the minibus which was an adventure in itself. The views are great though the little plaza was overrun with people and vendors selling trinkets. It did not help that some families were taking leisurely group photos...More

Excellent place to visit for the views of the Alhambra and you can quite unashamedly just go in for some refreshments. Staff accommodating not bothered that you are a non-resident.

As stated before, narrow streets and a tight fit, even for the small cars that are prominent here. If you are staying nearby, you may walk from your hotel. Be prepared for a steady uphill climb. I enjoy walking and viewing... More
