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

We walked part way up the hill to this place and then caught the small bus the rest of the way. It is well worth the effort for incredible views of the Alhambra and of the city of Grenada. We walked back down following the...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.

There are about a dozen ways to get up to the Mirador de San Nicolas and it's one of the to-do things for visitors to the city. If you're in shape and able to walk uphill for 20-30 minutes then I would advise you to...More

It is a very nice viewpoint to see the most beautiful views of the Alhambra along with the setting sun or the orange sky. The place was full with tourists and there were many people selling local artistic products by the square of San Nicolas....More

We took the bus up to Plaza San Nicolas by bus. We were in Plaza Nueva and the bus stop was right in front of a restaurant called Los Diamantes. The bus leaves you about 1 - 2 minutes away from this place. There are...More

This is a gorgeous view and you will be pleased with yourself for hiking up there, however the area has a lot of dodgy characters about and generally leaves you with a feeling of unease. I was glad to have my partner with me and...More

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
