The Mirador de San Nicolás is perhaps the most famous of Granada's many viewpoints.
The beauty of this viewpoint is undeniable!
It is a beautiful square located in the historic Albayzin district that offers spectacular views of the Alhambra, the Sierra Nevada and the city of Granada.
The enchantment of its surroundings, in the heart of the Albayzin district, with its cobbled streets, cisterns, tapas bars and the people who live there, add flavor to the already fascinating view.
The church of San Nicolás, built in 1525 on a mosque, gives its name to the square and the belvedere.
This Gothic temple is closed, awaiting a restoration that is not yet imminent. The church of San Nicolas has been rebuilt several times over the course of its history and has finally succumbed to water infiltration and humidity.
To reach the Mirador de San Nicolas the easiest way is to go up the wonderful alleys of the Albayzin. You can go up to Calle Caldererias, or Paseo de los Tristes or Cuesta Alhacaba and Plaza Larga.
If you don't feel like walking you can take the C1 or C2 minibus which cross the Albayzin. Also take a look at this article which gives you an overview of the tourist buses in the city of Granada.
Also a taxi from Plaza Nueva costs at least 5 euros.
