“Unparalleled views of the Alhambra”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

At night this spot is a bit of a mad house because it is crowded with people wanting to get the spectacular nighttime shots of the Alhambra all lit up. Don't let that keep you away. It is worth a visit day or night!

“Great view”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

You really come here for the view of the Alhambra across the ravine. It's crowded, but worth it for the views. Come here at sunset if possible.

“breathtaking views”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

It's THE place to at sunset in Granada, good ambience, view is really unbelievable with the Sierra Nevada and the Alhambra full of colors. Somes restaurants around are really great, especially San Nicolas and after that a good Ice cream at Helados San Nicolas make your night special. The place is totally safe, and you can access with the C1 minibus from Plaza Nueva in around 10 minutes (same by foot, but climbing !)

“Amazing view”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This is a great place to watch a sunset. You get an incredible view of the Alhambra and Granada. It is a popular spot but never uncomfortable.
