Sacromonte Tours

star-5
13 Reviews
Sacromonte
The Sacromonte district of Granada is the seat of the thriving Gitano gypsy community that settled in hillside caves during the 15th and 16th centuries. Today, Sacromonte is also the epicenter of Granada’s zambra flamenco scene, with performances staged at thee tablaos along Camino del Sacromonte.

The Basics
Covering a hillside just opposite the Alhambra, Sacromonte is one of the city’s most atmospheric and fascinating barrios. Twilight tours of the maze-like Albaicin (the Arab Quarter) often include a stroll through Sacromonte, as well, in part for the stellar views of the Alhambra illuminated at night. Many visitors come to the neighborhood to watch a flamenco show in one of the gitano caves; those with an interest in dance can even sign up for a private lesson.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • A flamenco show in Sacromonte is a quintessential Granada experience.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces; the streets of Sacromonte can be steep.
  • Flamenco shows along Camino del Sacromonte are popular; book seats in advance. 

How to Get There
It’s possible to walk to Sacromonte from most areas of the historic city center, but if you’d rather save your legs from the climb up the hill, hire a taxi or take bus C2.

When to Get There
Most visitors explore the neighborhood in the evening before or after a flamenco performance. One of the most festive times of year in Sacromonte is Holy Week (Semana Santa) when gitano parties spill into the streets and the procession of the Gypsy Christ is held.

Museo Cuevas del Sacromonte 
If you’re interested in seeing what one of the Sacromonte cave dwellings would have looked like when the gitano first settled in the neighborhood, pay a visit to the Museu Cuevas del Sacromonte. Located at the top of the hill, the museum features 10 caves, all designed to resemble those from a century ago.
