Well worth the walk up! Which isn't much so any fitness level shouldn't have a problem. My guide didn't recommend it because of the weather, I'm so glad I didn't heed his advice because the view of the city is amazing even on the cold windy day I was there !
Beautiful view of whole Granada, especially Albayzín looks well from this point. On the other hand, if you are in hurry, you should go to Generalife instead.
Nice view over the city of Granada and the Sierra Nevada. Simon Visit my website: www.noireblanc.de
Certainly not as impressive as the Nasrid Palace, but well worth the visit. You can climb on top of the towers and have a gorgeous view of the city.
Torre de la Vela viewed from the Plaza Santa Ana, Granada© Robert Bovington The tower in the photo is the Torre de la Vela. The bell was used by the Arabs to announce disasters. From this privileged position a vast expanse of territory could be seen including the Vega of Granada,. The tower was, therefore, critical for defence and surveillance. Later, the Christians used the bell to strike the hours and to announce the time that farmers could irrigate their fields. The Spanish flag was placed on the tower on January 2, 1492 at 3 pm.
