  • Great view but if you don't like to climb that much, go to the Mirador San Nicolas
  • Incredible view of the city and the Alhambra. Also way less touristy/crowded than the other viewpoints. It's a bit of a climb but very much worth the walk.
  • Best view over Granada. Less touristy than Mirador San Nicholas, hang out place for the locals. Came here on a Sunday evening where locals bring their guitar, beer and hang out here. Very relaxing, highly recommended!
  • Highly recommend. Not many people, beautiful scenary, cool wind and perfect viewpoint. If you see the sunset with a can of beer, it's a heaven. Caution : you need to climb a lot so bring your comfortable shoes.
  • Hands down the best view in Granada!! You can actually see the whole of Granada and everything in between! If the skies is clear you can view sunset here.

Where to stay in Granada

Granada is built in a valley looking up to the majestic Alhambra, and most visitors choose to stay where the view can be admired. Plaza Nueva, just down the hill from the Alhambra entry gates, constitutes the touristic center of the city. Many of the famous free-tapas bars and lively restaurants line this famous plaza, as well as a number of small hotels and apartment rentals. Found directly behind the plaza are the city's two historical old Moorish quarters, Albayzín and El Sacramonte, which are characterized by their narrow winding streets and picturesque whitewashed buildings. Here you'll find a number of charming hotels with hillside views of the Alhambra and city center.
