Don't miss this

Probably the best views in Granada towards the Alhambra. Don't forget to walk the backstreets too. Try to go early as it gets busy during the day.

You want to see a great sunset and get the best pictures of Alhambra this is it. Although there is some construction going on and a lot of school kids running around noisily, don't miss this photo opportunity.

Situated just across the valley from the Alhambra this mirador offers panoramic views of the ancient citadel. Take a taxi or C2 bus form the city centre as it is quite a hike up (of course coming down is easy!)

The Mirador San Nicholas is the best place to see the complex of Alhambra. You will never forget this view.

Worth the walk up in the sunshine. Beautiful views over the city and the Sierra nevada. Might be worth taking your lunch up there with you as we didn't find a good value lunch, although enjoyed a beer in the sunshine.

San NIcolás square faces a breathtaking view of the Alhambra on the far side of a ravine and the Sierra Nevada mountains behind it. A church stands in the square and just off it is a new mosque.

The mirador does have a wonderful view of the Sierra Nevada mountains, the Alhambra hill and the city. But the place is rather crowded and turistic. Eorth visiting, but there are better view points in Granada. ;)

I love this place. Best view of the Alhambra and Sierra nevada. Sit and relax! Easy to walk from paseo de los tristes. A bit hilly!
