The gypsies settled and have lived here for many generations. If you want to experience the real flamenco, this is the place to go. It is full of "caves" dwellings where they perform each night. This will be an unforgettable experience if you enjoy flamenco.

I'm not sure if we should have gone up there with somebody to guide us but we practically went up by bus, got lost and walked back down.

Up north but to the right of Albayzin, you can take a bus or wander a few minutes up the hills to the area full of locals, little cafes/restaurants and most of the buildings are caves made out of stone which actually lead into the hill. In the evenings the restaurants/bars open and are rumored to have flamenco and excellent... More

Fantastic tiny street weave their way up to a couple of bars and flamenco cafes with fabulous views over Alhambra. Well worth the effort. Have a drink in a tiny little cave bar 'Los Faroles' to meet some locals and the charming elderly publican. A gem.

New year's Eve but beautiful blue skies and sun. The cave houses were fascinating and anyone with an interest in ecology is well catered for here with everything explained in English. The bus (C2) from the centre was very crowded but it is a short hop and the walk back down by the river was charming, as were the views... More

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.
