What You Can Expect

Granada Evening Walking Tour with Tapas: Albaicin and Sacromonte

Enjoy a glass of wine and some typical tapas on a walking tour around Albaicin!

Meet your guide in Bib Rambla Square (Plaza Bib Rambla) near Granada Cathedral, and then start your evening stroll through gorgeous Albaicin. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the neighborhood sprawls over a hill adjacent to the Alhambra, and is known for its views of the palace complex set against the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

Explore the area with your guide and admire the cármenes (Granadan villas) and their beautiful gardens that line the streets. Moorish architecture abounds in this charming quarter, and your guide will point out some of the finest examples while talking about the days when the Moors reigned.

After admiring views of the Alhambra — another of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage stunners — continue walking from Albaicin to the Sacromonte caves. Built on the slopes of Cerro de San Miguel, the caves were originally lived in by Spanish gypsies and the area became a popular for the community to meet up, dance flamenco and relax.

Now a sought-after residential neighborhood, Sacromonte still retains its old-world charm and appeal, and represents the heart of Granada’s flamenco dancing scene. See the caves where local zambra (gypsy flamenco) is performed night after night, and admire views of the illuminated Alhambra, perched high on La Sabica Hill.

After exploring the city by night, call in at one of Granada’s famed tapas bars near Plaza Nueva to enjoy a drink (wine, draught beer or a soft drink) and a plate of local tapas. Your tour finishes inside the bar, but you can stay there for more food and drinks at your own expense, if you wish.

This was a great way to see the city and the Alhambra at night! We really enjoyed the tour and our guide was very knowledgable and tailored the tour to what the group wanted to see. The group was small so it felt like going out with friends!

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

speakers English was not the best but still understandable .. she knows the town inside out so that was awesome

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better November 2014

It was too small a group for what we wanted. All the reviews talk about how much fun it is and everyone has a few drinks. Whilst the tour was interesting and the guide did his best, there were only 2 couples. Ourselves, speaking English and a spanish couple who spoke no English. This meant the guide had to spread his time and repeat everything twice.
