Sacromonte

Sacromonte

The Sacromonte in Granada offers diverse geography, with mountain views, meadows and rivers, and ethnic variety, with Arabs, Jews, Spaniards and gypsies, along with a new type of house, the cave.

The Gypsies settled in Granada in the eighteenth century on the slopes of Cerro de San Miguel on the edge of the Camino del Sacromonte, the old route of the Guadix Muslims.

The Sacromonte offers views of indescribable beauty: the towers of the Alhambra, the white slopes of the Albaycin, the Valparaiso valley and the River Darro.
