The abbey is situated outside Granada and Albaicín but thou easy to find, I recomend that you take the bus (Line C2) there and then walk home. It looks very big on the outside but only contain a fantastic courtyard, a nice museum, church and the caves. Its very intresting see the places and the church is very nice and... More

Just had a great time going around the Abbey. The guided tour (it is only available by guided tour, for a very reasonable 4 euros) was presented by an extremely knowledgeable and engaging lady. She kindly translated the tour into English for the few of us who couldn't speak Spanish, this contributed to the tour lasting over an hour -... More

The guide was a great woman. She explained all the history of Granada in just an hour. She was a great communicator. There are a lot of pieces of art, such as, tapestry, first science books, paintings,....Hugely recommended and cheap! Arrive by bus from the city center and go back to the city on foot through Sacromonte neighbourhood

What a surprise! After visiting many churches and religious sites for more than 60 Days around Spain, this is one of the best for the money spent and the services provided at the facility. Although it is difficult to find, it is a must see in Granada. The building although needs restoring it is a beautiful place with wonderful views... More

Quite hard to find but well worth it!! A hidden gem, with great views and very interesting history dating back to the Roman times. Fascinating to see the caves and the treasures that were found in them. Kids enjoyed walking through the caves and the books and artefacts dating back to the 12th Century were incredible.

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
