This is a popular and excellent gathering spot to watch the sunset over the Alhambra. Visitors congregate on the plaza to socialize, take photos and patiently watch as the warm glow of the setting sun illuminates the magnificent structure.

We came here a few times as we were staying close by. It's a great atmosphere with views to torture your Facebook friends with. Best was after 9 pm.

This large perch is perfect to see the complete Alhambra complex. It's not a secret, so expect crowds. We were easily able to get some great photos. We arrived late afternoon to an amazing view that continued to marvel as the sun set. At night,...More

Nice walk thru the old Moorish quarter to end up at a great view of the city of Granada and the Alhambra. I also went up the steps of the bell tower . The 2 euros go toward reconstruction.

This is a must-visit spot in Granada. The view from here is simply breathtaking. It will probably be crowded no matter what time you go, but it is worth it.

Try in sunrise or sunset it's worth the climb. Views over the city. Surrounded by little bars and the odd group playing flamenco. We walked but there is a bus.

Up in a hill to watch the sunset and the vast greatness of Alhambra during afternoon is really a great experience. What a view!

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
