This is a very nice place to view the sunset and the Alhambra in the evening with the Sierra Nevada mountains as the backdrop. Loads of touristy eateries and shops selling ethnic stuff (the elephant and peacock motifs on cushion covers are more indian than muslim imfluenced mementos.). Dont give in and buy that stuff, frankly. Beware of pickpockets. This... More

For exercise I like to climb the Albaysin to the Plaza de San Nicolas, and eat nearby at Las Estellas de San Nicolas. I always like to allow myself a few hours here to enjoy the incredible view if the Alambra and the City, as well as enjoy the atmosphere of Gypsy singers, jewllery vendors, school trip visitors and tourists...

It was a charming walk all the way up through the old quarters and provide an excellent view point for the Alhambra. The restaurant Estrella was recommended by the hotel but we did not try it. There are a few cafes to at and drink but the square itself is very busy. The chapel is currently being renovated but I... More

This plaza is one of the best places to view the sunset. The light reflecting off of the nearby monuments makes this a very eye-catching place. Be sure to arrive early to grab a spot before the hordes of other tourists arrive. There are nearby restaurants that are good too.

Next to the Mirador so two birds with one stone. Also, take time to explore the side streets, you might find a small mosque with friendly attendants.
