Sacromonte of Granada
The Sacromonte, located on Mount Valparaíso is known as the Gypsy neighborhood of Granada. The Gypsies arrived in Spain in the 15th century after passing through Europe and Africa.
This picturesque neighborhood is notable because the homes are caves cut into the rock. It is believed that its origin is in the expulsion of Muslims and Jews from the city. They joined the Gypsies and built their new homes by digging caves into the mountain. Subsequently, the interior and facades were whitewashed, giving Sacromonte its unique landscape.
The Sacromonte Caves Museum offers the opportunity to explore one of these caves while offering us a tour of the culture and history of the neighborhood.
