Even in February so so crowded for sunset. Nice atmosphere of people. Music and talking and people visiting. You can ease your way to the edge all the way to the left. Beautiful view of the alahambra. Easier to get a spacious view next door...More

This spot is perfect for the romantic sunset view and the daytime view of the Alhambra. You can see how this place was an impenetrable fortress. Great spot for photographers and artists.

Undoubtedly the best lookout point in Granada to get a view of Alhambra, especially when it's lit up at night. It's also very popular with tourists who all want the best view of the Alhambra

100% worth the trek up the steps. Amazing views of the Alhambra and over the entire city. Amazing atmosphere with musicians and street artists and different restaurants and cafes dotted around.

It gets very crowded, so get there in plenty of time for sunset. Lovely area, and views in several places around and about, too, so worth going for a general explore.

Drive to the top (cab or rental) - lots of parking. Then walk down and admire the view. If you feel the need to go down a few steps you can but its pretty awesome from the top and with a baby I'd say that would be a great... More
