Full description
Visit some of the most emblematic quarters of Granada. No trip to Granada is complete without having visited the Albaicín and Sacromonte. The tour will pass through Albaicín, protected as a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1994. Also known as the old Muslim Quarter, it contains labyrinthine streets through which you will discover the fascinating world of Al-Andalus and enjoy the famous landscape of Granada from San Nicolás' viewpoint and more. You will then head to the Sacromonte Quarter, which contains more than 3,000 caves and panoramic views from hidden areas. Here you will get to know and understand gypsy culture in the Museo de las Cuevas, a place that demonstrates their history through legends and flamenco dancing. Your tour will also pass through principle Granada sites such as the Plaza Nueva, Placeta de San Gregorio and Casa Enrique Morente, all of which are prone for ideal photo opportunities.

FANTASTIC

WE ARE A COUPLE WHO ON OCTOBER 10, MADE THE NIGHT TOUR THROUGH THE ALBAICÍN AND THE CAVES. IT WAS FANTASTIC. WE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF ENJOYING OUR GUIDE LAURA LOS DOS SOLOS. LAURA TOTALLY ADAPTED TO OUR NEEDS, SHE SHOWED US CORNERS THAT DO NOT APPEAR IN "THE GUIDES", TOLD US A LOT OF STORIES AND LEGENDS ... AND WE WERE LOTS OF MORE. BUT THE MAGICAL MOMENT WAS WATCHING SUNSET AT THE MUSEUM OF THE CAVES IN THE ALTO DEL SACROMONTE. SPEECHLESS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH LAURA FOR LEAVING US THAT UNFORGETTABLE MEMORY OF GRANADA ON OUR LAST NIGHT OF STAY
