“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Definitely a long-ish hike to the bottom of the mountain. Went to the top of Sacromonte twice - the first on a free guided tour in the evening and saw the sunset, the second with friends in early afternoon. Both times was a fantastic view. Cool to see the graffiti and look at the houses. An interesting cultural experience and more "real" Spain because there are not so many tourists around. You have a great view of Alhambra and if you make it to the top where the church is, you can walk around to the back of the church and see the Sierra Nevadas.

“Sacromonte”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We took the no. 35 bus up to the top as we could not walk far, then stayed on it to descend to the amazing museum. The gardens here are also worth spending some time in.

“Beautiful views, cave dwellings and countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

A walk along the streets of Sacramonte is well worthwhile and very beautiful. The traditional cave houses are interesting. There are several places to stop for a drink or food. Walking along the main Camino del Sacramonte into the countryside shows a more rural, traditionally Spanish side of Granada unlike the city centre or the Albayzin. Very enjoyable!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Definitely worth visiting whilst staying in Granada, the views from Sacromonte are simply amazing overlooking the Alhambra and the hills of Granada. The famous caves are also located near here along with the unique narrow roads and views.

“Magical neighbourhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

If you have enough time in Granada, make sure that you take both a day walk and an evening walk down the streets of Sacromonte. During the day, you can visit the Cave museum whilst, in the evening, you have the option of having a glass of beer of wine in one of the Flamenco bars.Sacromonte is pure magic and from there, you will have a completely new view of the Alhambra.
