Sunset at San Miguel Alto

Perched above Granada, el Mirador San Miguel Alto looks out over the city, with the Alhambra to the left and the old Albaicín neighborhood falling away beneath it. On the way to the top, we waved hello to the hillside caves’ inhabitants, the owners of some of the most beautiful front door (or front curtain) views.

CIMG8476On that warm Friday, the murmur of people chatting at el Mirador San Miguel Alto and this gorgeous sunset welcomed me to Granada, and on my first night there, I was already falling for the city.
