With this visit you will have an overview of the two most famous hills of Granada,
The Albaicín, an ancient Muslim quarter, founded in the 11th century and Sacromonte, the gypsy quarter of the city, with origins in the 15th century, full of duende, flamenco and incredible views of the historic center of Granada and the monumental complex of the Alhambra.
You will discover how the first Muslims settled in this area, the typical elements of a Zirid city, its walls, gates, cisterns, baths, mosques, narrow cobbled streets and white houses that make this place a unique place in the world.
After leaving the old Zirí nucleus, we enter the Sacromonte, a place where we will learn about the origins of the gypsies in Granada and their most characteristic dance in Granada, the zambra.
