What people are saying about Granada, Spain

Located opposite the Alhambra, it provides another view of this place of worship. The visit of the caves is engaging, fascinating. You learn a lot of things there. A book in French was given to us spontaneously. Provide good shoes for the climb to the caves. 5€ per person is a fair price Downside review the signage

Worth it. Small but very descriptive museum. You get a great impression of how people lived in these caves not so long ago and you can see from some of the still inhabited caves above the museum that there are still some poor people living in the caves.

wonderful and amazing experience. A lot of stories. Plenty of small items showing the life of Gypsies who lived in the caves until 1963. Plus...what a view

Guide speaks very passionately about the neighborhood and the people who live there.

Guter Überblick über die damalige Wohnsituation und die heutigen Höhlenwohnhäuser
