The Sacromonte neighborhood is famous for its caves, in which the gypsies continue to celebrate their flamenco and cante flamenco parties every night. This is where the gypsies who accompanied the troops of the Catholic Monarchs when they conquered the city settled. Craftsmen worked wicker, wrought iron and copper, and artists established the roots of flamenco. Here the traditional zambra was born, with indigenous dances and songs such as the fly or the cachucha.

The main monument of the Sacromonte is its Abbey, where relics and testimonies of the first Christians of Granada are conserved and, among them, the first bishop of the city: San Cecilio. The Interpretation Center of Sacromonte also allows to know in depth the history of the neighborhood.
