Mirador de San Nicolas, Granada
(4.7/5 based on 6,500+ reviews on the web)
Mirador de San Nicolas offers unbeatable views of the Alhambra, the city’s main tourist attraction. Stretch your legs with a walk up the hill to this popular viewpoint, located at the highest point in this part of the city, or hop on one of many minibuses regularly operating in the area for a less strenuous sightseeing experience. The advantage of this location is that it’s free and open 24 hours a day. Whatever time of day you’re there, take plenty of photos, but be sure to mingle with the crowds to soak up the atmosphere and take in the local culture.
