I stupidly didnt prebook my tickets for the Alhambra so the best I could hope for during my stay in Granada was to get a good view of it instead. This is the best place to get that postcard style photo of the famous Alhambra...More

Climb the steep, winding streets of Granada's Albaycin, the old muslim quarter, to the Mirador San Nicolas. You will be rewarded with a sweeping, picture postcard view of the Alhambra in the distance. It is lovely to go at sunset, but of course, it is...More

We climbed some roads and came in this quite by accident. Turns out to be one of the best spots to see the Alhambra... We were especially lucky to have done it at sun set.

This is well worth the climb through the tiny streets, when you get to the top you have a fantastic view of the Alhambra Palace. We did it in 48 Degree heat but there were plenty of places to eat and drink along the way.

Get of the city bus C3, at this Mirador and spend time absorbing the view. Next, get yourself lost in this "barrio" with its narrow streets that form a nice labyrint. At the end, have at least a drink in a restaurant facing the Allambra.

Great place to take a taxi, watch the sunset, listen to street music, relax, have a drink and watch the lights come up on Alhambra. Difficult to get a taxi back down and wouldn't want to be wandering around trying to find one too late...More

We walked up there from the Paseo de los Tristes (Carrera del Darro) and Cuesta del Chapiz which was a beautiful walk along the Rio Darro and filled with historic buildings. At the top, there are a lot of restaurants that looked good as well....More

Hi John, yes it is! I see that someone suggested taking a taxi. I preferred walking up and getting a little lost along the way.

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
