Mirador San Nicolás
The square in front of the church of St Nicolas (originally a mosque) provides stunning views across the valley of the Rio Darro to the walls, ramparts and towers of the Alhambra. During the day the scenes are stunning, and if anything they are even more breathtaking at night. Be warned though, due to the high number of tourists, there are also a significantly high number of people interested in what tourists are carrying (money, cameras, passports etc). This is about the only place in the city where you really have to be on your guard.
