  • The view from the Mirador de San Nicolas is stunning regardless of the schedule. Surely will have one of the most beautiful views of life. The Alhambra, Sierra Nevada and the sunset simply breath. There are a few bars and you can hear the music played by Gypsies in the Plaza de San Nicolas. Not to be missed.
