    Tranquil despite the crowds!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When you arrive at the Mirador you may have to wait a little while for a space on the wall to free up. People are understandbly reluctant to leave such an inspiring view of the Alhambra, the Sierra Nevada and the plains beyond. At the height of the tourist season there are lots of people selling trinkets and playing guitar music which adds to the atmosphere (bongos less so I find!!)
    Two tips about this spot 1. For the older or less fit tourist...there are little mini buses leaving from Plaza Nueva that will run you up there .Then you can enjoy the winding stroll back down the hill, especially useful if you are visiting in July or August.
    2. A mosque was built in 2002 (?) to the right of the Mirador. This spot offers more or less the same view but less people and a pretty garden to relax in.

    Views and Music from "Mirador San Nicolas"

    by garcinarro Updated May 30, 2003
    Mirador San Nicolas

    Favorite thing: Granada is una ciudad para quedarse con todo el sabor que tiene. El Mirador de San Nicolas es uno de esos sitios donde la gente se sienta para leer y de vez encuando levantar la vista y encontrar la belleza de uno de los mejores anocheres del mundo, con la Alhambra al fondo incluida Sierra Nevada, puedes soñar con esta vista que no ha cambiado apenas desde los tiempos de Boabdil (ultimo rey musulman).

    Fondest memory: Granada es especial por todo, la comida las vistas, las gentes.
    Probablemente será una de las ciudades más bohemias del mundo, conserva su herencia multicultural, convivieron en ella las tres culturas del libro (musulmana, hebrea y cristiana).

    Si alguna vez me pierdo buscarme en Granada.
