Over the last few weeks I’ve gone to see the sunset 4 times. 3 of them near Ermita de San Miguel el Alto and for the last one I went for a hike to Llano de la Perdiz. You probably already know that sunset is one of my most favourite things.
1) So the first place is really easy to reach. From the city center it takes around 30 minutes to get through the Albayzin. It is all up to the hill but the moment you see the view you forget how out of breath you felt before. You can enjoy the view with random people on the old building’s terrace or stay a bit more down, sit on a grass and enjoy your own company (alone, with friends or with your other half).
If you’re not in the hurry then enjoy the view also after the sunset to see the sky getting darker in every minute and city turning on the lights. It is especially good view to Alhambra.
2) Llano de la Perdiz – mostly visited by bikers and easily accessed by car. I have none of them so I decided to hike up there. And probably I was the only one. Although on the way back I saw a big group who looked like hikers.
So the hike up there took me about an hour and a half. Could have gone faster but I enjoyed the views and in the end I was looking for a good place for the sunset. I found a place near suggested place that showed on a map on the place. I climbed a bit down the hill and had privacy to enjoy my own company and sunset. And I have to say that from this point the sun looked huge!
Only thing is that I forgot how fast it gets dark after sunset. So most of the way back I was walking in darkness. I could see a bit but it was a little scary.
