Once you visit the Alhambra and have taken the best photos from its intricate ceilings, walls, tapestries and murals, you're going to want to take a picture of the entire palace complex as well. In the small overlook, you will definitely see the palace ensconced in its military walls and, in the evening, all lit up for your viewing pleasure.... More

We made it just before sunset and it was already quite crowded. The far left end of the mirador (when facing the alhambra) gives the widest view over the city. The 30 minutes after the sun sets is when it became most beautiful as the clouds above the Alhambra caught the light in a magical way - so don't leave... More

It is absulately a must. In our guide book, it says to go there at sunset but we went in the late morning. Still it was excellent, so magical. There were two guys playing guitar and singing. We could stay there all day to watch the view and listen them. Be careful for pick pockets. A girl at the information... More

Our night guide, Ignacio aka Nacho took us for a night stroll around Albayzin and of course, San Nicholas en route to Venta el Cuevo for our Flamenco dance It was cold, dark night stroll but the view of La Alhambra was simply outstanding. This would be a fantastic idea for couples, snuggling and huddling together in the cold winter... More

I love this mirador.It is amazing!You can enjoy wonderful views of Alambra and Sierra Nevada,listening to guitar music-there is usually someone playing flamenco music.It is the best place in Granada. One disadvantage-since its so popular and kind of a hipster place you need to look out for your belongings.
