Description

If the explorer in you is calling for a little adventure, this ethnographic museum will make your day! Thrillingly located in a set of caves, it will teach you all about the 18th-century Gypsy settlers, the diverse geography of the region, and its history. You'll also get sensational views of Alhambra!

The Gypsies (now more commonly known as Romani) settled in Granada in the 18th century, on the slopes of Cerro de San Miguel. For centuries, the caves of Sacromonte were their home.

Here, in what is now the museum of Sacromonte, you can explore ten recreated caves and learn about their cave-dwelling lifestyle and vibrant culture.

You'll see how the homes were and are set up, early decorations made with basic tools, and traditional handicrafts such as forging, basketwork, ceramics, and weaving. In the Nature Room you'll learn about the agriculture, plants, and climate that aided their success in living off the land.

The museum also has a nature path leading to a full-scale model of the Darro valley, with sensational views over the valley and the Alhambra.

It was an amazing experience to visit these beautiful and intriguing caves. Anyone who has read Lucinda Riley's, Seven Sister's books, will feel the emotion Lucinda generated about the Sacramonte caves that she wrote about. We walked to the caves following the directions on Google maps and left from the center of Granada. It was a steady climb up through the beautiful narrow streets of Granada, which was an experience in itself and took approximately 40 minutes. There is also a very frequent bus service to the caves if walking isn't an option. We felt the view to the Palace and over to the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains was exceptional and even on a January day, it was toasting hot as we sat and admired the view, whilst enjoying a beer and a Spanish coffee. If you can manage to walk above the caves, there is an entire cave community, quite extraordinary to see. This trip, which isn't a tour, didn't appear on trip advisor as a top ten attraction, which it definitely should be. We only came across it because we were curious about seeing a cave dwelling and because of the Seven Sister's books. The caves, 7 of them, only cost €5 to visit and are without doubt money well spent.

Would highly recommend doing this. I would go in the morning when it opens to allow time when there are not many people and the heat is low.
