  • We went to the Mirador de San Nicolas the evening after sunset to admire the view of the illuminated alhambra. On the square you can sip a fresh beer with the background of Thealuse songs played by street artists.

  • Oirafor is in the district of Albacim, we went by bus C31. The Dweller is very nice because it offers us a very beautiful view of the Alcazar, the city... It's worth the visit.
