See another side of Granada by walking out to Sacromonte and experiencing Gitano culture: visit a cave and see a Flamenco show. If you have the energy, take the pedestrian-only path from the Albaicin.

WAlking on the cobbly streets will take your breath away. Still many of the cave homes are inhabited and look really impressive, almost like hobbit homes. You will see lots of guitarrs around this area marking the true flamenco spirit. There are many flamenco shows organised in this area during the night and definetly worth a visit, just dont take...

We enjoyed walking up the hill and exploring Sacremonte a little. Great views across to the Alhambra and we found a lovely little cave bar in which to grab some drinks which our kids loved.

Walking up to Sacromonte from the main area in Granada is very pleasant. Once up there the area is strewn with cave abodes, it is very quaint. It is peaceful and one of the best spots on the hill is just sitting, sipping a gazpacho and looking at the Alhambra.

The museum is atmospheric as well as factual being housed in the caves themselves and the walk there and back combined with the time spent in the area of the museum puts what is there into context and contrasts with the "fancy" town over the valley. The Museum is not well signposted and we had to use a temporary entry... More

This area is the gipsy quarter. They built their homes in caves excavated in the soft rock in the early 1800's. After major floods in 1960, many were forced to leave. The area has now become more of a tourist attraction, and a centre for flamenco. Go in the evening to visit one of the many "tablaos" (flamenco group). During... More

A wonderful evening of Flamenco with some amazing dancers of all ages. The dance is a sight to be seen and very worth while
