Walked through this turistic area and bought some Moorish mules and a leather wallet. Many designs of Spanish pottery available with copper in some of the Moroccan shops with plenty of souvenirs.

We walked all the way to Sacremonte and it took us about 3-4 hours. If I could live anywhere, it would be here! So picturesque and beautiful.

It's an easy walk from Granada or take the bus. The C2 goes every 15 mins or so from Plaza Nuevo. There are lots of bars with flamenco dancing nestling in caves but the facades make them look like ordinary bar fronts. We paid to go into a cave house which was tiny but interesting. Two small sitting rooms in... More

I stayed one week in a stone house in Sacromonte. Staying in a stone house with the view of Al-Hambra made me feel that I exist beyond the time and space. To be lost in the Sacromonte neighbourhood and taking great pictures of narrow streets and beatiful gardens adorned with cercises by breathing the scent of jasmines is a MUST... More

We have been to Granada many times but this was our first visit to this area. We just walked around as it was afternoon and very quiet, but an evening visit would be good I imagine, when the flamenco clubs are open. You do need to be reasonably fit however as there are lots of steps.

I'm sure there may be a lot to see, but from figuring out how to enter the Sacromonte and exploring it with only a basic map proved to be impossible. We wondered around but could not find much to explore. So, it's probably best seen with a guide.

This is where the flamenco was born and you can watch really good flamenco performances here, having dinner at the same time
