  • The place you can go there by Taxi, but it is a bit crowded, like any other touristic place. I think there are more places to view the Alhambra, but it is nice we can't complain.

  • Although you can get the tourist train up here, the walk up through the narrow streets was an experience. Amazing views of the Alhambra and the city.

  • Some great opportunities to take panoramic images of Granada's Alhambra from here. With views of the Sierra Nevada mountains on the horizon, seasonal changes offer a range of colours for the background. Worth a visit if you have plenty of time,for a really short stay perhaps not.
  • Great food and experience. Even though the restaurant has reserved tables, they got us a table to accommodate us. The food was delicious and the wine cold. Even when one of my friends complained about the wine being hot, they got us another bottle on the house. The pastries were delicious as well. Highly recommended when visiting Grenada.
