Tour description provided by Viator

Join our most exclusive tour of Albayzin and gypsy Sacromonte at twilight in our Cicerone reduced group.  Marvel  yourself with the spectacular panorama views of the Alhambra at night.
The Districts of Albayzín and Sacromonte, both declared World Heritage Sites, are two of the most colourful, historic and enchanting areas in the city of Granada. To walk through the Albayzín in the evening, in a reduced group, to wander its narrow, jasmine-scented streets and enjoy the fantastic views of the Alhambra, to admire the gardens of the Cármenes (the traditional local houses) is a pleasure for all the senses as well as a taste of the area’s Moorish origins. The Sacromonte district is the area settled by the gypsies who accompanied the troops of the Catholic Kings in their conquest of the city. It is famed for its cave houses, where the descendants of those gypsies continue to celebrate their traditions with dances and songs. The traditional Zambra  was born here, a local variety of songs and dances that are still performed today. Our route starts at sunset. The group will have several opportunities to enjoy views of the Alhambra at different times as the evening draws on. At the end of this guided walk, the participants are invited to a drink with a tapa, a traditional custom of Granada.
