The view towards the Alhambra is amazing. You can go there at any time of the day, the view is always going to be different. The only problem is that it gets very crowded...

While the Alhambra isa great place to visit, there is no better place to see the Alhambra in all its glory other than the Mirador de San Nicholas. Go during twilight to see the lights come on in the Alhambra as well

It is well worth the walk up to Mirador de San Nicolas. We first went there late in the evening and found some lovely bars with comfortable 'sofa' seating overlooking the Alhambra on the other side of the 'valley'. The Alhambra is beautifully floodlit and...More

It's fun getting lost on the winding streets leading up to the viewpoint. My map didn't have all the street names, so it was just luck that I turned down the right alley to get there. The viewpoint is directly across from the Alhambra, so...More

Go for sunset. The patio is alive with people enjoying the spectacular view of Alhambra with the blue/grey mountains beyond. Stand on a bench to get a photo from above all the heads.

Come here for golden hour and sunset for a great view of the Alhambra over the whitewashed town. Get there early for a seat on the edge of the wall.

Hi John, yes it is! I see that someone suggested taking a taxi. I preferred walking up and getting a little lost along the way.
Is there a way to get here without walking. We will be travelling with a baby. Can we bring a stroller?

As stated before, narrow streets and a tight fit, even for the small cars that are prominent here. If you are staying nearby, you may walk from your hotel. Be prepared for a steady uphill climb. I enjoy walking and viewing... More
