Particularly enjoyed a drink in an informal bar which comprised someone's front garden. Owner showed us round his cave home and was really friendly. Go to the museum - well worth the 5 euro entry fee.

We went under our own steam walking up to Sacromonte and found a bar with flamenco dancing. We paid a small amount and got a glass of wine too! Very exciting!

Visit the caves of the Roma gypsies in Sacromonte, Granada, Spain. They also perform their flamenco dance in the caves also serving sangria and cocktails

Wonderful views of Alhambra. Fascinating how people lived and live in caves and adapted them by adding rooms. Cultural experience.

This is a very interesting part of Granada and home to the gypsy's who have been there for years. Their homes are built into the side of the mountain. The gypsy's in Granda are the ones who do the Flamenco dancing and its definitely worth going to an evening show. I would suggest you look into the different options and... More

Take a taxi and walk back. The museum is small, but certainly worth a visit. The views of the Alhambra are more stunning than from San Nicolas.

Not a primary reason to go to Granada nor a place to visit if your time is limited. There is a museum which highlights cave dwellings and the way of life in the caves, which are man made. Some other dwellings in Sacromonte seem inhabited by "hippies" according according to our 25 to 30yo guide.

The view is absolutely fantastic, well worth the walk. When in the museum, the tour guide really adds something.
