Went on a delightful free walking tour with Nick P. around the caves. It was a bit shocking to see people living in such conditions so close to the city, but I admire them all the more for that! Hope the government minds their own business and leaves them alone.

We went to the museum of Sacromonte it's not got bells and whistles but it has interesting info about local gypsies, cave dwelling and the history of flamenco. It's very relaxed and lots of interesting plants with info about there herbal value. The caves are interesting to look around the views and cactus are amazing

During the day, climb the hill to the cave home museum. So worth the 5€! See how Moors and Gypsies have lived. At night there are cave bars with flamenco dances. (Having seen flamenco before, we skipped the nightlife there.)

Its quite a walk up (steep as well so be careful) but completely worth it! One can take a beer-break at the cave-style places on the way. Suggest going right to the top - the view of Granada and the Alhambra is simply breath taking! There was also this old lady who was serving sangria (made it right there in... More

An amazing labyrinth of streets, twists and turns. You must visit and experience where the caves are of the Roma community. Whilst I never seen it, I believe if you want to see some Zambra, a flamenco variation, this is the place to go. Just beneath the highest church, I think it's called San Miguel, you can see where hippies... More

Walk by for the interesting architecture and views, however, the place is a little over priced for food or drinks

get you Flamenco experience here in the caves. An extraordinary place! It is hard to miss Flamenco in Granada as they bring it to the streets for you. Seeing it in the caves was a novel experience and a delight!

We were not expecting this. The walk was fun but what we saw is highly unusual to North Americans. It was a very pleasant afternoon excursion and well worth to effort to climb the hill
