  • One of the best places to see the Alhambra from the front, but noisy place with too many people. Other nearby places (including the garden of the mosque that touches St. Nicholas), are to be favored.

  • The San Nicolas has the best view to the Alhambra and the Albayzin. Easily reachable by bus. It worth a visit both during the day and at night.  more »
