So was not sure what to expect---this Museo charges 5EUR and gives access to 11 white caves which are set up as they would have been for families who lived in caves. It is a steep walk uphill and if you go, take in the caves along the way that are current homes for people and restaurants----that is super cool!... More

this is a great hike to experience while at Grenada.... Please visit the tour guides with the "Red Umbrella". They tours are free and the tour guides are very knowledgeable, so please tip them out very well !!! It was one of the most humbling moments I've experienced while in Spain.

One of the highest parts of the city and from appearances one of the oldest. We drove through Sacromonte on the tourist bus and the earphone narration was very informative. We were there in late July, on a weekday and just after lunchtime so there wasn't a lot of activity, but well worth visiting

We made the mistake of walking up to sacromonte during mid day when the heat was the highest. It took a lot out of us but the caves and the views were worth it. It wouldn't be easy for someone with walking difficulties though

Sacramonte and a visit to the Museo Cuevas is walkable from Granada in half a day. and well worth while if you ae not familiar with troglodyte dwellings. The museum has reconstructed the interiors of several caves to show the lives of previous inhabitants and other aspects of rural life. The museum is unsophisticated but appropriate.

It's a typical district of the city of Granada, it is located on a hill where you can have an amazing view on the Alhambra palace

Filled with caves (be they homes or restaurants), Sacromonte is the area which beckons you with the romanticism of gypsies, be it the traditional flamenco or the lovely landscape of the area!!

After the Zambra show , our guide took us on a night walk through the Sacromonte. He gave us a feel of the houses and the life of Granada. He took us to a view point from where he showed us a spectacular view of the Alhambra and also Granada. It was too late in the night and so we... More
