Well worth a visit

After a long walk we eventually found the museum and it was well with the effort. There were some interesting facts about the origin of flamenco and Granada.

I'm not a museum person but decided to give this a go and I'm glad I did! For 5 euros you get to walk into multiple caves dwellings. Along the way you read truly intresting facts about sacramonte, flamenco, gypsies, etc. At the end of the tour, you get a gorgeous view of Alhambra and Sacramonte. On top of this,... More

I have visited a number of troglodyte villages, this is a good exemplar. 11 caves fitted out to show how people lived in the cave dwellings and the traditional activities carried out there. Outside are displays about the local flora and fauna and an exhibition about troglodyte dwellings worldwide. An excellent vantage point for viewing Granada, the Alhambra and the... More

Quite a hike up to this museum but a really interesting and educational tour of the cave dwellings of the former Romani people. Great insight into the culture and lifestyle of this group of inhabitants. Once again a spectacular view of the Alhambra, the city and the mountains. Breathtaking sunset and definitely a tour not to be missed!

Excellent explanation of cave dwelling in the Sacramonte and in other places. Features also on traditional work practices, flamenco and a bit of ecology. Stunning views of the Alhambra.

When we were there the path to the cuevas was under rehabilitation so we had to take a long detour; in fact we enjoyed it as that enabled us to take in the view to the Alhambra- best faraway pics, and do a little exrcise. It was touching to see how the gitanos and best flamenco artists lived in those... More

Already the walk to the museum is worth it: fantastic views on the Alhambra from so many different view points. And all this without having to battle throngs of other tourists wanting to take pictures. The museum itself offers an interesting, small exhibition. Particularly nice the old photographs that show what the caves which now make up the museum looked... More

We loved going to the Sacromonte cave area to see flamenco. We purchased tickets at our hotel...and yes it was somewhat pricy...but we were driven there by a van...we stopped to see a magnificent night view of the Alhambra and were treated to very fun flamenco in this case area. We liked it very much and recommend it.

We were not expecting to learn so much about the gypsies of the Sacramonte here, but we did. The way they gave us information about each part of the their life's was done very well. The museum was easy to find using the C2 bus from Plaza Nueva and asking the bus to let us know when to get off... More
