Walked through Sacromonte on a Sunday with my partner, which is a great Sunday activity if you have already been to the Alhambra as a lot of things are closed. The town itself is incredibly beautiful (and full of hills so be prepared to climb)...More

It was 5 euros to walk around this interesting museum. It’s a steep ascent up to the museum but it’s worth it

Small museum dedicated to gypsy life in Spain, not so long ago. Worth a visit. Overlooking the Alhambra castle, it probably provides the best place to take pictures of the castle from a short distance.
