What to Expect
Join an enthusiastic guide who works only for tips on a free walking tour of the Sacromonte neighborhood in Granada.
Follow them along narrow streets, built on the side of the hill that is home to the Sacromonte Abbey. Founded in 1600, just outside the old city walls, the Abbey and its surrounding is the site of the annual Fiesta of San Cecilio. It is also the birthplace of flamenco, and the favored district of the gitanos (gypsies).
Learn how they have lived there for over 4 centuries, and why they carved an underworld of endless tunnels and houses buried on the hillside. See some of the cave houses where they lived, and enjoy breathtaking views of the Alhambra and old city center.
