This museum is characterised by an important cultural and natural heritage due to the combination of monuments, house caves and the beautiful natural landscapes.

It is located in the heart of the Sacromonte district, in the cliff called Barranco de los Negros, just in front of the Alhambra.

According to its detailed web, this ethnographic and environmental museum works to point out the value of the Sacromonte heritage through cultural, environmental and educational activities.

There are 10 caves in the museum in which the visitor can learn about Sacromonte inhabitants’ living conditions and old crafts such as wickerwork, forging, ceramics and weaving. This museum exhaustively explains the concept of Troglodytism and the history of Flamenco.

This landmark is endowed with a valuable heritage constituted by all its caves and is accompanied by natural and monumental landscape elements of great beauty.

The Darro River Valley called Valparaíso, Sacormonte and Generalife woods, the walls called Cerca de Don Gonzalo, the hill called Cerro del Aceituno and the fountain called Fuente del Avellano are the surroundings that, along with its inhabitants, create this magic environment.

Museo Cuevas del Sacromonte helps visitors to understand, respect and learn to love this wonderful environment.
