A historic landscape unfolds before you

The Darro valley in its fullness and lost in its grove the golden river, the Darro river... On your left you will see a white building on the Sun Hill. It is the Generalife, built between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries, was conceived as a palace for rest, where ornamental gardens, orchards, fountains, courtyards and buildings are integrated in the surroundings of the Alhambra.

Right next to the Alhambra, the palatine city sitting like a ship stranded on the Sabika hill dominating from above the fertile plain and Granada city. Surrounded by mountains, the Arab writers compared Granada to a crown, on whose forehead stands the Alhambra diadem. Do not miss the opportunity to visit it.

Down in the city are the numerous bell towers, most of them built on the minarets of ancient mosques, and in the center of the valley the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel, where the remains of the Catholic Monarchs rest.

To your right, on the top of the San Miguel hill, you can see the last medieval wall of the city, known as the Don Gonzalo Fence, built around 1340.

Enjoy these views and your visit. 

Treasure this memory of Sacromonte, a neighborhood outside the city, outside the walls, free, where those who lived in these caves left us as a legacy a deep imprint on the memory, 
Flamenco's rebelliousness and the culture of the common people.
