  • Granada: Sacromonte Caves Flamenco Show

    1. Granada: Sacromonte Caves Flamenco Show

    Watch an amazing flamenco show in the historic caves of the Sacromonte district of Granada and immerse yourself in the sensual rhythms and passionate sounds of the folkloric tradition in a unique venue. Thought to have been inhabited by Muslims more than 500 years ago, the cave dwellings were later occupied by gypsies who used them as living quarters and for temporary refuge after the conquest of the city by Christians. Experience the diversity of the Sacromonte neighborhood, where people of all races and walks of life now live in harmony. Pay your respect to the roots of flamenco as you survey your extraordinary surroundings and listen to music that will elevate you to levels of unknown pleasure.  Then, journey back in time and explore the narrow streets of the Albayzin district that dates back to the days of the Nasrid Kingdom.

    We stood outside in very cold weather from before 9.30pm which was our pick up time at the Eurostar Hotel in Gran Via; the bus arrived just before 10pm. There must be a better way to co ordinate a pick up. And the booking site could give live updates regarding progress if the bus, The flamenco performance was brilliant. The advertised program was a tour of the Albaicin usually after the show. All that was offered was a bus ride up to the St Nicholas viewsite to take night photos of the Alhambra and a brief explanation about the relatively new and only mosque in Granada. That’s not a tour, it’s a photo op and a four minute talk on the same site. You could improve your logistics and accuracy

We loved it !! First: the Show was very good! Very well staged! The wonderful experience of seeing it in a real Gypsy cave adds a unique contribution! We have read other comments before hiring him and he questioned us! But I tell you not to listen to us! Really worth it ! Not only because of how artistic it was excellent, but also because of the importance of seeing it in a historical place and of a gypsy family with a long history !! 100% recommendable!! We were amazed and my wife and daughter studied flamenco and they understand something and were fascinated !!

I went with my friend and we both enjoyed the experience.You have to walk quite a bit to get there (uphill) but there are a lot of places where you can sit and pause..but it is definetly worth it.Awesome view and many caves to check out.Every cave is different.

Mar was a great guide, punctual, great connoisseur of her city and extremely friendly and helpful. Nice to be treated so well. He would repeat without a doubt with her.
