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.

Mirador de San Nicolas reviews
This was a highlight of our trip. Watching the sunset from the viewing wall is just magical. You look directly across to the Alhambra and the sweeping view also takes in Rio Darro and the Sierra... more »
The mirador is aptly named. People go there to admire the view of course but you can also enjoy a guitar tune and the songs that escape from it ! more »
This spot offers the best view of the Alhambra citadel and the city below, but it can get very busy. There are other spots that won't be as busy, but may not offer as good a view as you will find here.
One of the most wonderful places of Granada. It's breathtaking! It's like is you could touch the Alhambra with your hands... No words can describe it. And if the snow had fallen over Sierra Nevada, OMG... It's like a painting! Enjoy!!
