Walked that little bit further along the riverside and up the hill to view the cave museum. A modest display of the cave-living life of previous generations. It also placed the basic fundamentals of such living into an international perspective. Everything about it is modest...More

Well worth a visit, if you have time to go further than the Albaicín. More atmosphere, perhaps, curious cave dwellings, superb views and some great eateries.

This area of Granada was where the gypsies lived in caves..now mainly small bars with flamenco shows. Worth a walk (it’s a small but busy road) as the little houses are pretty & the views across to the Alhambra lovely

This is the traditional area occupied by the gypsies , attended a Flamenco traditional show in one of the caves. Was very passionate and show cased the era that was the past and the simplicity of the cave house.
