Mirador de San Cristobal is quite high up on the hill. Depending on your level of fitness you might struggle, unless you are very fit, or catch a bus or get a ride somehow. We took a leisurely walk so it wasn't that bad, and enjoyed the road. The views from the top are really great if you are not looking for anything specific. If you want something more specific, like the Alhambra, then you might be better off elsewhere, like Mirador San Nicolas which is about ten or so minutes walk away.

Well worth visiting before you go to the Alhambra. Prepare yourself for a climb in thinner mountain air and there can be crowds ther most of the time.

There are great views of the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada after a hike up narrow lanes. There are probably better views elsewhere but still worth the effort

Really not worth a detour, especially if you have to hike up the steps to get there, which on our visit involved dodging litter and dog poo. Though probably the highest viewpoint in the city, its certainly a long way from being the best. Personally, I’d recommend climbing the tower at the Iglesia de San Miguel Bajo on Placeta de San Miguel Bajo, instead.

Not really worth it, would definitely recommend Mirador San Miguel do Alto for a breathtaking panorama of the entire region or power view points for closer view over Alhambra. This one looks great from other viewpoints though as it has a picturesque church on top of the hill. The are is very pleasant to walk around anyway.
