Plaza de San Nicolas, Granada

4.7
A steep hike through the Albaicín will lead you to Plaza de San Nicolas and a view of Granada that will leave you speechless. In this vista, see all of Granada's major attractions, such as the Alhambra and the Generalife, against a backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Around you, a handful of locals enjoy their city from a distance, over a newspaper, perhaps, while visitors snap photos from every angle. The plaza’s church welcomes worshippers and hosts events in its chapel, which sometimes spill out onto the plaza, where you may see guitarists strumming under a central cross. A visit to Plaza de San Nicolas represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Granada online sightseeing planner to plot your vacation.

  • Lots of atmosphere, music from some flamenco, and the views of the Alhambra from the viewpoint. Recommended!
