This place is unbelievable. You can see whole city from this small square. Of course the best view to Alhambra as well. You can find there street musicians.

You have everything here. Church if you’re Catholic, Mosque if you’re Muslim, a stunning view, some vendors selling souvenirs, and a few good restaurants. El Balcón de San Nicolás is my recommendation since the drinks had a reasonable price, and the breathtaking view was free...More
