Plaza de San Nicolas, Granada

(4.7/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
A steep hike through the Albaicín will lead you to Plaza de San Nicolas and a view of Granada that will leave you speechless. In this vista, see all of Granada's major attractions, such as the Alhambra and the Generalife, against a backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Around you, a handful of locals enjoy their city from a distance, over a newspaper, perhaps, while visitors snap photos from every angle. The plaza’s church welcomes worshippers and hosts events in its chapel, which sometimes spill out onto the plaza, where you may see guitarists strumming under a central cross. Put Plaza de San Nicolas and other Granada attractions into our Granada trip itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • As all the good vantage points... should upload and upload by precious and labyrinthine alleyways. It is the beautiful Granada, Miss through the streets and let yourself surprise with what may appear. The views of the Alhambra are spectacular, and the atmosphere that there is pure party and joy. Always there is someone playing palmas and giving you to the sing, so if you have luck, listen a little of art granaíno.

  • The plaza is a bit of an uphill walk but you have great views of the Alhambra. You can climb the church tower if you want to go even higher for a view! The plaza has a few artists selling their wares ...  more »
  • One of the corners more famous of Granada and of the world, thanks to the beautiful views that has of the Alhambra. Always with atmosphere day and night. The whole area (Albaicín) is beautiful to walk its streets and squares and let yourself go.
