We drove through because it's nestled high up in the mountains. But it's beautiful and I recommend a visit. The best views of the Alhambra especially at night.
One of my husband and my favorite days on our October honeymoon was the day was walked and walked and walked all over the Sacromonte. Go. Get lost. Walk along the winding road and keep going up until you find the most beautiful view overlooking the Alhambra.
Great conservation work on the main building of Abbey's Premises, done mainly by means of the small entrance fee they charge. €4 very well spent. We were shown around by wonderful guide (not sure if she speaks English) and had the opportunity to admire the Abbey's treasures and great history. Bus 35 will take you there. Drivers take the most... More
Went on a free walking tour within 30 minutes of arriving in Granada from hostel I was staying at that included the caves. It was a lot of steps around Granada and then across to the caves, but well worth the effort. A fantastic introduction to Granada and Sacromonte. The views are great and the diversity of caves were interesting... More
It was a steep walk up to Sacromonte, passing many Aloe Vera plants looking like they were poised to snatch unsuspecting walkers. We went inspired by a leaflet, which seemed to be missing some vital bits of information. We arrived at 3.15. The site was deserted. There was no sign of life other than the vegetation that had taken route... More
We had a good walk up to the Sacromonte, and the way was well signposted either from the depths of the Albaicin or from the river. You get a little map of the area to guide you, and there are a lot of signs in English and Spanish to explain the life in those caves. The view across to the... More
Worth a visit to the cave museum, as it is a lifestyle unknown to me. I cannot imagine how life must have been many years ago. It is very interesting how the caves blend into the hillside. Be warned it is a steep walk up to the museum and would be impossible for a wheel chair bound person. The views... More
This is something a bit different. A series of man-made caves tunneled into the hillside to form homes in a cave community. The house we visited even had a room 'under construction. and it was amazing to see the quality of the finish, plus the extent of the decorations. Once you walk in the door, you almost forget you are... More
This is just at the base of Albayzin and on the back side of Alhambra. There are a lot of restaurants selling drinks (drinks only inside their premise) and you can have a nice dinner at this place. There is a open place where the locals hang out and you get a very good local vibe when you sit there... More
This is the gypsy neighborhood in Granada. It's a really nice walk with an unique view. We highly recommend to visit "the caves museum" and "the museum of the gypsy woman". Coffe or beer in the bars around after the uphill hike it's a must.
