Mirador de San Cristóbal Overlook in Albaicín District of Granada, Spain

Three Albayzín landmarks are visible from the Mirador de San Cristóbal overlook near the Church of San Cristóbal. In the center is Palacio de Dar al-Horra. During the 15th century, this palace was the residence of Aixa (mother of Granada’s last king) and then Hernando de Zafra (royal secretary of the Catholic Monarchs). Then it became the Monastery of Santa Isabel la Real. The convent’s bell tower is in the middle. The white belfry is the Church of San Miguel Bajo (built in the 16th century). From this viewing platform, you can also see the 11th century wall surrounding Albaicín plus the Palace of Charles V in the Alhambra.
