Very calm place. It is difficult to get there, because of location on hill, but is was a challenge and you must do it. Museum give you a view about life of gypsies lived there.

Our first time visiting the caves, although we've been to Granada 5 or 6 times. Nice steep climb up the hills, if the sun's out be prepared to sweat! Museo is well signposted so we didn't get lost and the walk is alongside the main...More

Great little museum. Very informative on all the history of cave houses and flamenco. Very nice people that run the museum and great views of the Alhambra and Granada below.

Quite a climb to get up there but well worth the visit. Friendly and informative staff and able to wander round at your own pace.

Not as grand as the Catedral or the Alhambra. But an integral part of the culture and people of Granada. Fascinating to see how the gypsies lived in caves. They lived on the barren North side of the river valley. Museum covers the flora and...More

It's not that hard a walk and the caves bring to life a number of elements of Adalucian culture. The explanation of the local vegetation were also interesting. Great view of the Alhambra as well.

These caves are easy walking distance of Granada if you don't mind a steady climb. It took us 20 mins from the Albaicin area and we set off just after 9.30 to be there when it opened at 10am. The museum is great, very informative...More
