The best in a day
The ascent begins at the Casas del Chapiz, two Moorish palaces from the 16th century. In front of the statue of Chorrojumo, the gypsy patriarch whom the painter Manuel Fortuny immortalized. A little later, the Zambra de María la Canastera, converted into a museum, is worth a visit.
You can stop at Casa Juanillo to try its famous tortilla, and head to the Museo Cuevas del Sacromonte, which recreates the habitat and lifestyle of the neighborhood. The Ethnological Museum of Gypsy Women also provides an interesting view of this ethnic group. You should arrive at the last guided tour of the Sacromonte Abbey, at 18.00, to be amazed by the impressive history of the place.
It is a privilege to go down with the sunset over the Alhambra. The Sale El Gallo is a good place to recharge; and after dinner, you can visit different caves, such as Los Tarantos, which offers flamenco zambras that end at an appropriate time.
