Great viewpoint to Alhambra

Amazing view to the Alhambra. We went to a few other viewpoints (smaller and less crowded but this was the one with the best view).

Looking out from the palace the evening before our visit, we could see the crowd many deep, gazing across at us. We caught the C1 bus up to the site and we glad we had, it would have been a long hot walk up. After enjoying the view, we walked downhill through Albaycin

To actually get a photo of the Alhambra properly this is the place to go. The view over the Alhambra and the city centre of Granada beside it is great. Another plus is that the walk up from the city centre (which takes maybe 20 mins) is very good and takes you through the narrow, winding streets of Sacromonte. You... More

A good viewpoint to see the Alhambra in its full glory and for once this is a place where you actually will be looking at the sunset OVER the “item” you’re looking at, not looking at the sunset AT the “item”. So you will see the palace shift colour and see the lights being turned on at the palace. Quite... More

By the time when I was there, it was full of people. But it gives you a nice view on the whole city and Alhambra. Recomendable to visit it for sunset or sun rising.

Lots of people but plenty of spots to get a clear view of the Alhambra. We stayed for an hour or so to make sure we saw the full extent of the sunset and then the Alhambra lit up at dusk (stunning).

Lovely view over Granada and the Alhambra. Walk if you are able through the streets of the Albaycin or take the C1 bus which is easy and cheap. The cobblestones/rocks are not easy to walk on in the area. Eateries take advantage of the tourists and are a bit pricey.
