The Alhambra Palace gets all the attention in Granada. But you'll find that there's much more to discover during this STEP walking tour of Sacromonte – the city's Romany neighbourhood. See the hill-carved cave houses where the Roma people once lived, explore the catacombs beneath Sacromonte Abbey and try typical pastries in the Moorish-era Albaicin district.
Led by a local guide, you'll go off the beaten path to parts of the city most tourists miss out on. First up is a visit to the historic Sacromonte Abbey. Hike up to this handsome piece of 17th-century architecture and take in views over the Alhambra before descending into the underground catacombs – home of the Christ of the Gypsies statue. Every Easter, the Roma people parade the figure through the streets as part of the huge Semana Santa celebrations.
Next, you'll stroll through Sacromonte's sloping streets to find out why the neighbourhood is known as sacred hill. See how people once lived inside the ancient cave houses carved into the hillside, then round off with some tasty pastry treats at a local bakery in the Moorish Albaicin district.
