The Sacromente was, for us, the best of our trip to Granada. The location is far away from the milling crowds and with the stately cathedral surrounded by white washed houses, the place is incredibly atmospheric. The Cathedral building with it's artefacts and caves, are a must see.

The clusters of white cave houses overlooking the Majestic fort of Alhambra is a perfect place for a romantic outing. Walk and wander around the place and enjoy the Flamenco dance !!

Maybe it's different during the day but on 2 successive nights (one of which was a weekend) we walked around Sacramonte after having dinner in the Albaczin. Unless we missed something, the only "authentic" thing we saw was tour buses taking people to "authentic" clubs to see flamenco. Unless we didn't walk out far enough, don't bother.

While in Granada not only was I able to view the Alhambra but also to view and learn of the Gypsys home area called Sacromonte. The area and the name comes from the Abby in the area called Sacromonte but somehow is more famous for the catacombs in the area and of all the Gypsies that live in the mountain... More

We walked along the hillside lanes from the Albaicin to Sacromonte with a full view of the Generalife and the Alhambra across the valley. This is a very interesting neighborhood and well worth a visit. Many cave homes still exist, some refurbished and others rather primitive. There are several places where flamenco shows take place in caves. If you walk,... More

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.
