  • The mirador is aptly named. People go there to admire the view of course but you can also enjoy a guitar tune and the songs that escape from it !  more »
  • Yes it can get very crowded especially at sunset but this remains an obligatory stop in Grenada to get some amazing views of the Alahmbra.  more »
