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.

Only way to do Sacromonte and Albaicin if you’re short on time!
Our family of 5 had the best time with Daniel. He is so passionate about Spanish history. We loved seeing Sacromonte and Albaicin by Segway. We would highly recommend this tour.

Granada Walking Guided Tour around Albayzín and Sacromonte
We had a a superb guide in Adria who was very knowledgable about the Albaicin and the cave houses of Sacromonte, one of which we visited. Without a guided tour we would have missed so many interesting places

Albayzin and Sacromonte Guided Walking Tour in Granada
This was an excellent walk, and our guide. Mar really did a good job of making sure that the walking was accessible for everyone in our group. There are a lot of ups and downs on this, but the pace was appropriate so don't think you have to be an Olympic athlete to do this tour.

Granada Walking Tour: Albaicin and Sacromonte Quarters
Josh was an excellent and interesting tour guide who spoke English very well. Tour provided fascinating sights and stories. Great to be able to go into a Sacromonte Cave home. The only addition I would have liked would have been to go into one of the Albaicín homes, though the tour guide, Josh, did point out one that we could visit and explore ourselves later.

Granada: Albaicin and Sacromonte Segway Adventure
What a perfect way to see the city! Do this early in your trip so you can see all the sites and it gives you a great overview. Granada is very hilly and steep . This is the easiest , most gun, and less taxing way to get the beautiful city . Danny was fabulous! He was so knowledgeable, friendly and patient. His English is great and he has nice charm. He is passionate about the history and what he does and it shows. We were in South Spain for 10 days and we all agree that this was one of the highlights of our trip and he have Segwayed before . Thanks Again, and good luck with your future teaching career!

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.
