Description

East of Albayzín and in front of the Alhambra is another of Granada’s traditional neighbourhoods. After the city was retaken by the Catholic Monarchs Sacromonte became the home for the city’s gypsy community. The neighbourhood is on the precipitous slopes of Valparaíso amid pines and cactuses, and at some point in the 16th-century the settlers began to hew their homes from the rock-face. As you stroll past these dwellings you’ll notice how no two cave houses are the same, as their dimensions are determined entirely by the difficult terrain. Naturally, if you want to see a true flamenco performance, these caves are the real deal.
