Owner description: A large hill located close to the Albayzín that is known for its caves that have been turned into public places for flamenco performances.

I had high hopes for this because I had heard there were caves in which people lived or ran restaurants and flamenco shows, but it wasn't what I imagined and consists of high-priced tourist-oriented flamenco places where people are bused in from the Gran Via. There are some nice views on the climb back to the Albayzin (old Arab quarter of Granada). I did get a little lost coming back down but luckily found myself back by one of the main old portals to the Albayzin closer to the Gran Via.

Easy to get here by bus in the daytime. Entrance to the caves museum has moved due a land slip so be prepared for a steep path and some steps. Good view of Alhambra and lots of caves, each with differing contents to show a typical home, stables, pottery studio, textiles etc. also displays concerning geology, ecology and the background of flamenco.

Went for a long walk in this Gitano (gypsy) district full of cacti and cave dwelling with whitewashed entrances. Recommend visiting the Sacromonte Museum for a taste of gypsy life in the cave dwellings.

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.

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.
