Mirador de San Nicolas

Superb view at the top:


Mirador de San Nicolás is one of the must visit attractions, which I strongly recommend. The perfect place to have a superb view at the top. It is simple neighborhood and you can have a glass of beer or coffee at one of the cafes and restaurants overlooking the Alhambra and Sierra Nevada.

If you want to catch the sunset, please check the timing of the sunset before going over. Please note it is difficult to get a taxi down to the city center, and the bus timing is not very frequent. Hence, we walked downhill to the Plaza Nueva.
