Full description
Immerse yourself in Spanish history with a guided tour through the Sacromonte Abbey. The site of a landmark discovery of relics in 1594, construction began on the stunning abbey in 1600, continuing through the 17th century until a stunning collection of churches, courtyards, and other religious buildings were completed in the 18th century. Located on Mount Valparaiso, marvelously overlooking the city, the Sacromonte Abbey forms an indispensable portion of Granada’s religious history.

With tours departing every half hour from 10:30 AM to 5:00 or 5:30 PM, you can easily select a tour that fits your schedule. As you walk around the beautiful monastery, your guide will inform you of the secret histories and fascinating details of Sacromonte’s historical and contemporary significance—both to Granada, Spain, and the world at large.

It has been a unique experience, we arrived 5 minutes late, because we did not know the site, we called to notify, we were given the next visit and we were lucky to be the only couple of the visit. It was not only a "private tour" but the guide was a lover of the sacromonte. His enthusiasm and dedication made us delve into the history of this great city as if we were living at that time. Thanks Julian for expressing your charm, it was an unforgettable experience. We will definitely return.

very interesting visit, beautiful view of Granada. I regret the state of abandonment of the seminar. A hotel for Christian retreatants would be welcome. For tourists, a cafeteria is missing, where they could have a light meal, like sandwiches.

Beautiful historical ensemble, a guide that is a little too "reciting" without conviction or smiling .... forcing information! beautiful view facing the Alhambra and Granada.
