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

So was not sure what to expect---this Museo charges 5EUR and gives access to 11 white caves which are set up as they would have been for families who lived in caves. It is a steep walk uphill and if you go, take in the caves along the way that are current homes for people and restaurants----that is super cool!... More

this is a great hike to experience while at Grenada.... Please visit the tour guides with the "Red Umbrella". They tours are free and the tour guides are very knowledgeable, so please tip them out very well !!! It was one of the most humbling moments I've experienced while in Spain.

One of the highest parts of the city and from appearances one of the oldest. We drove through Sacromonte on the tourist bus and the earphone narration was very informative. We were there in late July, on a weekday and just after lunchtime so there wasn't a lot of activity, but well worth visiting
