The best view of the Alhambra, and perhaps one of the best views in the country! Stroll around while taking pics and enjoy the live Flamenco music in the area. Excellent spot for photographers & tourists!

Visited day and night. Loved the views over the city and the Alhambra. The buskers, singing and playing guitar added to the atmosphere. Bar/restaurant (Juan Ranas) with lovely terrace garden just below is worth a visit.

Great zone to be able to see the Alhambra Palace, listen to the music which has always been played by local musicians whenever we have visited there. Well worth the effort to get there if you are walking or the local bus will take you...More

I would recommend the coach- Alsa. Super cheap, can book online and takes around the same duration.
