We took the C2 bus out to the Abbey. It closes for a few hours at 1:30pm, but the last tour also starts at 1:30pm. It was about a 40 minute tour and you'll see some great art, ancient texts (both Christian and Muslim) and tour the catacombs.

The Abbey is located at the top of Sacromonte hill. You have a half hour walk to arrive. The place houses the remains of San Cecilio, one of the early Christian martyrs of Granada and is a pilgrimage site. There is an abbey and a school at the place. You can get in with a guided tour (we were four... More

To get away from all the crowds visit this (free) peaceful and scenic spot overlooking Granada. It is most beautiful inside and worth the steep climb ( or bus up and walk down!)

We were lucky enough to be at the abbey for their last tour of the day at 1 PM. It was given in Spanish but we got enough out of the tour to enjoy ourselves. Very interesting place to visit.

Just had a great time going around the Abbey. The guided tour (it is only available by guided tour, for a very reasonable 4 euros) was presented by an extremely knowledgeable and engaging lady. She kindly translated the tour into English for the few of us who couldn't speak Spanish, this contributed to the tour lasting over an hour -... More

The guide was a great woman. She explained all the history of Granada in just an hour. She was a great communicator. There are a lot of pieces of art, such as, tapestry, first science books, paintings,....Hugely recommended and cheap! Arrive by bus from the city center and go back to the city on foot through Sacromonte neighbourhood

What a surprise! After visiting many churches and religious sites for more than 60 Days around Spain, this is one of the best for the money spent and the services provided at the facility. Although it is difficult to find, it is a must see in Granada. The building although needs restoring it is a beautiful place with wonderful views... More

Quite hard to find but well worth it!! A hidden gem, with great views and very interesting history dating back to the Roman times. Fascinating to see the caves and the treasures that were found in them. Kids enjoyed walking through the caves and the books and artefacts dating back to the 12th Century were incredible.
