This is the best place in Granada to take pictures of the Alhambra. This is where the souvenir pictures are taken from. The area is big and there is entertainment, shops and food. This is a can't be missed location.

The steep walk up to the top is definitely worth it. The panoramic views are amazing - and this is a hive of activity at any time of the day or evening.

You come up to the plaza for the view without a doubt! The downside are the hoards of people. There is a sort of hippy, transient vibe with lots of little street vendors - interesting and great for people watching.

Excellent view of Alhambra. Worth the climb and wandering through the old city. Take a taxi if time is limited or physically unable. Well worth it!

This location gives you fantastic views of the Alhambra and the Generalife. There's a kind of flea market there, which might interest some folk, but it really would have been better with some cafes and restaurants
