We went taking the bus going to the Albayzin and continuing to the Sacromonte. It is difficult to reach this monastery but well worth seeing it because there are many interesting things to see there. The abbey has books made of lead that were written in Arabic and treated themes of Christianity and the Moslem religion. There is a museum... More

Although the Abbey has suffered a fire and the actual buildings are closed to the public. The outside of the buildings show a range of architecture, culture and religious influences. It is both a fascinating and peaceful place. From the back of the Abbey there are beautiful views of the countryside and mountains. From the front there is an amazing... More

Great visit. The bus ride up through the Albaycin & Sacromonte is an adventure in itself. Once you arrive at the Abadia there are fantastic views of the Alhambra & central Granada. The guided tour of the Abadia is very informative and enjoyable. Our guide, Sonia, was great. She answered everyone's questions and made the visit fun.

We walked on up from the cave museum in Sacramonte. A huge monastery from the early 17th century, some if it beginning to fall into disrepair. Very atmospheric and you feel out in the countryside but still with views of the Alhambra. As it was not open from 11-1 and 4-6, we did not go in. But I expect it... More

We took the 35 bus from plaza nueva to the monastery and for less than 2 euros each we had a fascinating trip through albbayzin and sacromonte to the monastery. It is only open from 11-1 and 4-6 so we didn't get to go in but the trip was still worth it for the views. We the walked all the... More

The Sacromonte means sacred mountain and there is a very interesting abbey there that can be reached by using the No. 34 bus from Plaza Nueva. Few people ever visit this abbey, but it is worth seeing. There were caves here and many people thought that in one of them they had found the remains of St. Cecilio, who is... More
