This area is the gipsy quarter. They built their homes in caves excavated in the soft rock in the early 1800's. After major floods in 1960, many were forced to leave. The area has now become more of a tourist attraction, and a centre for flamenco. Go in the evening to visit one of the many "tablaos" (flamenco group). During... More

A wonderful evening of Flamenco with some amazing dancers of all ages. The dance is a sight to be seen and very worth while

It's almost a year since I visited this wonderful corner of Granada with whispers of books I have read tickling my ears and setting my senses alive with childlike curiosity and expectancy. My friend and I had booked to watch the flamenco show with a meal included at El Templo Da Flamenco and had been walking in circles up and... More

We did a fabulous 2 hour walk from the Albaycin up to Allambra via the goat tracks which traversed the hill. Went past gypsy houses and could easily see the caves of Sacramonte from the walk as well as the farming below. Great walk and well worth the rocky path.

The food wasn't anything great, but the show was a lot of fun. They definitely pack the people into these little show caves!

From Granada, we walked up the steep hills to reach Sacromonte, where the buildings are dug out caves. On the way up there were lots of places to stop for a cool drink and a nice view. We return to the area in the evening for a fantastic, authentic Flamenco show. This is part of the history and culture of... More

A hefty walk (or a taxi) away from Albayzin / the city center. Pretty well-restored cave-dwellings, with informative snippets everywhere from their farms/gardens and the irrigation systems. Pretty scenic vistas of the hills from various vantage points around the attraction. Other than that, nothing mind blowing. Perhaps a nice stop on the way to the Museo de Abadia some way... More

Quirky and cool, great for a flamenco show, but also just to wander the funny little bars and hills.

take the walk up the hill through the winding houses in caves. Life is now, life is ancient. Go to the top and look across the canyon and around sunset to see the "hippies" living, drumming, singing, as they have for decades. How simple life can be. At night everything changes with music, flamenco bars, the curious and the enlightened.... More

One of the most interesting places in Granada as the gypsy life remains almost intact. Must go to the Zambra Gitana which is basically the origins of Flamenco! Try la Cueva de la Rocío, world famous and renowned all over the globe. It is a life-changing experience!!
