Next we head for a high up viewpoint so we can soak in more of the fabulous exterior of the Alhambra before our visit.
Mirador San Nicolas is the most well known as it boasts the best views of the Alhambra.
This viewpoint offers a unobstructed and direct view of the Alhambra and is known to be one of the best sunset spots in Granada.
You can also see the Sierra Nevada stretching out behind the imposing fortifications.
This is the spot to come and get those iconic photos – but it gets busy so you’ll be jostling for position with plenty of other people.
But it certainly is worth it to be able to tick this awe inspiring sight off my bucket list 🙂
