Took an evening walk to explore this area. Very hilly wear good walking shoes. It a a gypsy neighborhood where the houses are caves and are actually built into the mountain. Good views once you reach to very top.

Don't think that cave-people live in this area. But normal people live in the cave houses, a popular property on airbnb. I hiked up all the way to the church on the hill for panoramic views of beautiful city of granada. The legend has it " In 1492 - fall of Granada. The arab nobels we asked to convert to... More

The best way to experience Sacromonte is to walk up to it, steep climb though it is, becoming aware of the changing landscape, from cobbled streets lined with white houses, to steep dusty paths through expanses of steep scrub with agave and prickly pear in abundance. There is a bus available almost to the top if you are unable to... More

We went for dinner in Sacromonte, which provided a great view back to Alhambra at night. There a number of restaurants spread across the Sacromonte hillside, many with attractive outdoor patios or roof decks. Walking throughout is interesting with walled gardens and views but challenging at times on narrow roads and cobblestones. As this area is known for the Gypsy... More

Booked the Flamenco show at our hotel. Transportation was provided to the cave where we were astounded at the pictures on the walls and shiny copper pans hanging from the ceiling. The room was spotless. We were a small group of 12, but the dancers, singer and guitarist put on a show as if we were kings and queens. Such... More

The day I went to Sacromonte the only place that was open was the Roman Cave museum. The proprietor was very nice. But the caves themselves were a disappointment. They are not actual ancient Roman cave dwellings. They are historically correct recreations of Roman cave dwellings. This attraction alone is not worth the trip. But an evening of flamenco like...

Took a walking tour of lovely Granada, which we eventually arrived in sacromonte for an evening of Flamenco. We had a delightful dinner at a local cave restaurant. One set of dancers were very good the others looked totally disinterested.

The Sacromonte area is unique. My husband and I went to restaurant were the interior had many caves. We saw a spectacular Flamenco show. Gypsies used to live in caves. This is the impression that the Sacromonte gave.
