This is the part of the city where the Spanish-Muslim architecture is at its most spectacular, and the views of the Alhambra are stunning. Discover the essence of Islamic Granada along a labyrinth of narrow streets.
Discover Sacromonte and admire one of the best-known gypsy neighborhoods in Spain, and see the traditional caves where people still live, surrounded by nature and the culture and art of Andalucia. Admire the views of the city from a place where art, nature and heritage are their most attractive.

Enjoyed walking around these neighborhoods, which we would not have done in such detail otherwise. The guide was personable and knew a lot. However, we specifically booked an English language trip. The majority of the people were English speaking and yet the guide spoke in Spanish more than half the time to the four people who were Spanish speaking and somehow included on our tour. Also, she ended 15 minutes early at a scenic viewpoint, which was quite a ways from the starting point, leaving us to find our own way back. I had assumed that we would be brought back to the starting point.
If you are in Granada you must see this part of the city. The tour was great overall - there was some confusion when we arrived as our names weren't on the list, but the company quickly rectified the situation and got us rescheduled.
Got a private tour since I was the only English speaker
