I think a tour would be beneficial as the area is large and they would know exactly where to go. My son did a free tour a couple of years ago and found it fabulous. Due to restrictions walking uphill for one of us we decided to catch the C2 bus from Plaza Nueva to the Sacromonte Abbey (great views)... More

We toured the Sacromonte on the same walking tour to the Albayzin. There were no more gypsies nowadays and the original caves have been converted to "houses". There was a cave that let people in to look around (all rooms decorated with furniture) for 1 euro. Was worth the cost.

We marched around the corner from our hotel in the very cool late evening air. Pick up was at 21:30! We were transported via the Albayzin for a half hour walkabout which we were not dressed for and not mentioned on the brochure. (No walking shoes for the pebbles and no coats against the cold.) We were then unceremoniously dropped... More

A lot of walking around up and down winding hilly alleys. It's quite interesting with good photo opportunities. Good views of the Alhambra as well.

We did the tour of the Sacromonte caves with Flamenco with granadapicnictours. So nice to have a guide in this remote area. We visited a lived in cave and saw how the Gypsy families liveed here 500 years ago and some still do today.

Explored this wonderful part of Granada. great views of the city. The little gypsy bars were fascinating. Enjoyed a drink at one; the service by the host was wonderful. Got totally lost on the way back to the hotel, but still a great experience. Totally recommended for any visit to Granada.

For the hike up there, there isn't much to see unless you go for a specific guitar or flamenco show or maybe the museum. We walked the Camino de Sacromonte as well as the higher street that winds through the neighborhood. Didn't see anything special, just more great views of the Alhambra.

Study up on the history of Sacromonte before, so you can appreciate the reason it is called that. Worth the walk up the steep streets and don't miss the Gypsy homes in the caves at teh top. A must for history buffs or to further understand Chrisitanity and its conversion of the Moorish community.
