After being in flamencos in Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilha and Valencia, I must say this is the best tablao flamenco I have ever seen. Genuine, super ambience tremendous dancers. A MUST ! UNFORGATABLE !

If you are pushed for time you could miss going here and not have missed too much. We caught the No.35 bus to the top and just had a little uphill walk - the cost of the museums was more than we were willing to pay. Seemed a very sleepy village during the day and possibly is more alive in... More

I echo other submitted reviews and implore travellers to set aside an hour to meander through Sacromonte. It's a mere fifteen to twenty minutes from Plaza Nuevo, and its simple charm and stillness is a nice respite from the commotion below. That said the mesuem is something of a mystery. It's billed as a local cultural museum, and I admit... More

A hike up the Sacromonte is a part of every trip I take to Granada. At the top is a church with a great view of Granada. The Gitano cave houses are very cool.

Sacromonte is a cute little town you can actually walk to from the Centro of Granada. You can spend a few hours wondering the streets eating a local restaurants etc. We didn't have much to do there so we went to visit the gypsy caves which are a tiring uphill walk. It wasn't the best thing I've seen but it's... More

The Museo Cuevas del Sacromonte (the Cave Museum) is a substantial uphill walk from Granada town centre. We were confused by some early signs that seemed to identify the cave restaurants as the museum… they aren’t – keep walking up the road! Following a land slide, the temporary entrance now takes you up steps, around the edge of a music... More

I had high hopes for this because I had heard there were caves in which people lived or ran restaurants and flamenco shows, but it wasn't what I imagined and consists of high-priced tourist-oriented flamenco places where people are bused in from the Gran Via. There are some nice views on the climb back to the Albayzin (old Arab quarter... More

Easy to get here by bus in the daytime. Entrance to the caves museum has moved due a land slip so be prepared for a steep path and some steps. Good view of Alhambra and lots of caves, each with differing contents to show a typical home, stables, pottery studio, textiles etc. also displays concerning geology, ecology and the background...

Went for a long walk in this Gitano (gypsy) district full of cacti and cave dwelling with whitewashed entrances. Recommend visiting the Sacromonte Museum for a taste of gypsy life in the cave dwellings.

Definitely a long-ish hike to the bottom of the mountain. Went to the top of Sacromonte twice - the first on a free guided tour in the evening and saw the sunset, the second with friends in early afternoon. Both times was a fantastic view. Cool to see the graffiti and look at the houses. An interesting cultural experience and... More
