Neighborhood Tourist Spot
Many of the dwellings in Sacromonte, a neighborhood set among the mountains of Granada, are caves in which Romani people have traditionally made their homes. Visit the ethnographic museum to learn more about this traditional way of life for the Romani people and the particular customs of the caves and this neighborhood. The area is known for its particular style of flamenco dancing, so it can be an excellent spot to catch a performance.

Where to stay in Granada

Granada is built in a valley looking up to the majestic Alhambra, and most visitors choose to stay where the view can be admired. Plaza Nueva, just down the hill from the Alhambra entry gates, constitutes the touristic center of the city. Many of the famous free-tapas bars and lively restaurants line this famous plaza, as well as a number of small hotels and apartment rentals. Found directly behind the plaza are the city's two historical old Moorish quarters, Albayzín and El Sacramonte, which are characterized by their narrow winding streets and picturesque whitewashed buildings. Here you'll find a number of charming hotels with hillside views of the Alhambra and city center.
