For the hike up there, there isn't much to see unless you go for a specific guitar or flamenco show or maybe the museum. We walked the Camino de Sacromonte as well as the higher street that winds through the neighborhood. Didn't see anything special, just more great views of the Alhambra.

Study up on the history of Sacromonte before, so you can appreciate the reason it is called that. Worth the walk up the steep streets and don't miss the Gypsy homes in the caves at teh top. A must for history buffs or to further understand Chrisitanity and its conversion of the Moorish community.

The same day we reached Granada we visited Sacromonte. Mini bus passed from tiny roads up hill to the Gipsy's territory with a very nice view of Alhambra. Main purpose of this tour was flamingo dance taking place in caves which once was Gypsy's home. It was good experience and we enjoyed.

Alhough we didn't eat at this venue the atmosphere was electric. The flamenco dancers, musicians and singers were intense and powerful. Well worth the trip through the sacromonte area.

This was an experience like no other. I had the best time. The show and the food was amazing. The whole neighborhood was like a completely different world.

The Sacred Hill is the Gypsy Quarter of Granada and still houses those cave houses for the population that choose to make it their home. It has a beautiful view of the whole of Granada, including the Alhmabra, but be warned it is a very steep and strenous climb, with dirt paths that can be slippery.

I found the Sacramento Museum most interesting after the Fine Arts Museum. The walk from Carrera de Daro up to the entrance is worth doing and the visit is very informative.

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.
