Today we hiked up into the hills above Granada into a unique neighborhood named Sacromonte. All I had been told about this part of the city was it is dangerous and I shouldn’t got there alone.
Sometimes the most dangerous parts of a city are also the most amazing.
Sacromonte is famous for its flamenco dancing, beautiful views of the Alhambra and Granada and its unique personality.
As we walked up (literally up, it is on the top of a large hill) ancient cobblestones mixed with modern asphalt we had to jump out of the way of cars and after stopping to take far too many photos I had to rush to keep up with the group. We saw at least 6 stray cats and heard some random music being played out an open window.
Ironically, with my camera around my neck and a sweatshirt tied 90’s style around my waist, I began to feel like less of a tourist.
Here are some more pictures from my wonderful adventure:
