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.
