Cute cave houses

Today we’re taking a trek to see some of the famous Cave houses that are dotted up high in Granada.

Most are found in the area known as Sacromonte – sacred or holy mountain.

The Sacromonte district is located on the Valparaiso hill of Granada and borders the north-east side of the Arab El Albaícin district.

In the 15th century, a large group of Roma, or the Spanish gypsies (the Gitanos) situated themselves here.

In the Sacromonte Caves Museum there are ten cave houses, where you can find traditional interiors and learn more about the history, traditions and inhabitants of Sacromonte.

Sacromonte is also the the birthplace of Spanish flamenco, a dance created by Spain’s gitano, or Romani, community.
