  • Try the Huerto de Juan Ranos up here. There's also a nice square café behind the church. Lots of buskers playing in the square.  more »
  • Great at sunset! Perfect place to watch the sunset in Granada with live street music and lots of friendly people around. The whole Albaicin area is amazing and I would definitely go there again  more »
  • This spot offers the best view of the Alhambra citadel and the city below, but it can get very busy. There are other spots that won't be as busy, but may not offer as good a view as you will find here.
  • One of the most wonderful places of Granada. It's breathtaking! It's like is you could touch the Alhambra with your hands... No words can describe it. And if the snow had fallen over Sierra Nevada, OMG... It's like a painting! Enjoy!!
