Visiting Granada is a marvelous experience. There are multiple things in the city that will catch your attention and delight your senses. One of the most emblematic places of the city is the Alhambra. This important architectonic complex is a trully jewel that really worth to visit. But right after visiting the Alhambra, we suggest you to take a walk to the San Nicolas viewpoint in Granada, to admire the Alhambra from the distance.

This viewpoint is located at the neighbourhood of Albaicin in Granada. To reach this place, there are 2 options:

  • To take a bus (line 31) from Plaza Nueva until the Church of San Salvador and then to walk for a couple of minutes. This is the best option for the ones that have troubles to walk long distances.
  • To take a stroll from Plaza Nueva util the San Nicolas viewpoint in Granada. The walk is ver pleasant, as it goes for some of the most beautiful streets of the Albaicin. The 30-minute route goes from the Aire Street, the “Cuesta de San Gregorio” and the “Camino de San Nicolas”, and there is also the option to choose the “Camino de los Tristes”. Even when the route may seem complicated in the map, don’t worry, as it’s signposted.

Beside, at the viewpont there is a nice atmosphere, with street musicians and craft sellers. We suggest you to go back by taking the “Calle de las Teterias” (the street of the Teahouses), where you will find the coziest places to have a cup of tea, a piece of pastry and to rest for a while.
