MIRADOR SAN NICOLAS
The Plaza de San Nicolas is situated in Granada Old Town, known as the Albaicin.
It is possible to walk to it form the centre of the town, if you’re the energetic type.
Alternatively, you can catch one of the little transit-style buses that rattle through the old town’s narrow cobbled streets.
The plaza has a wonderful view back to the Alhambra Palace, with the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background.
There are also a number of bars and restaurants in the vicinity if you feel in need of refreshment.
When we were there there were musicians playing Spanish guitar which added to the atmosphere.
There’ll be plenty of other tourists there with you, but it is well worth the effort as you don’t get that view from anywhere else.
No doubt that the Alhambra is a pearl in the heart of Andalucia. From the views over Albayzin across to the Medieval city walls hrough the beautifully-shaped windows of the Nasrid palaces to the views *of* the Alhambra from the Gerneralife, you will be spoilt for choice.
DOWNTOWN PLAZA NUEVA GRANADA
Plaza Nueva works on many levels. A beautiful linear square that runs along the Daro River. Gorgeous views on one side up the hill to the Alhambra and to the Albaicin neighborhood on the other. This is tourist central for Granada.
