“Great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Very nice view of the city. If you make it up there, take some time to visit the church and then just sit and watch the view of the Alhambra and Granada. From there the main square, Plaza Mayor is close by and this is also a place that you should visit.

“Incredible view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Well worth the trek through the Albayzin (which is beautiful enough on its own) to reach this place. The view of the Alhambra from here is breathtaking. We did it at night and the palace looked fantastic lit up.

“Great view of the Alhambra”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Came up here to watch the light go down on the Alhambra for some great pictures. Atmospheric with street musicians playing. Worth the climb!

“Great place to view Alhambra - day or sunset”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Take the small city bus, you will fine out why they have to be small!
From the bus stop, walk up the steep cobblestone road to the plaza, where you and hundreds of your newest tourist friends will have great view of Alhambra. A space on the retaining wall gives you a nice place for a photo opportunity.
