Description of Tour

The Sacramonte is one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods of Granada because of its history, traditions and its fantastic view of the Alhambra. Here, on the outskirts of the city, the Gypsies were given permission by the Catholic Monarchs to settle in the 15th century. There were natural caves that were used as dwellings by the gypsies. It is still the typical house form here.

We will take a public bus or a taxi to the heart of Sacramonte. We will learn a lot about this ancestral dwelling on a path that takes us along the cave dwellings. Along the way, we can also enjoy great views of the Alhambra.

Our path will take us directly to the next neighborhood, the Allbayzin, which is just across the street from the Alhambra. This is where the city of Granada was founded as an Islamic city around 1013. Today, the network of streets, the former water supply, its carmenes and churches are reminders of this centuries-long Islamic past.

Our walk takes us through the narrow streets to the lookout point in front of St Nicholas Church. Here we enjoy the best view of the Alhambra. Then we go on and visit on the way a Carmen, a former Arab bath complex, a former house, which was built by converted Muslims, so-called Moriscos. Special is also the architecture of the churches here, because they are former mosques.

There are plenty of opportunities for a typical break in the Albayzin, either in a tea house or on a terrace with a view of the Alhambra. Our walk ends in the central Plaza Nueva at the foot of the Albayzin in the middle of the city.
