A quarter whose backbone is the ‘Via Sacra’ or the Camino del Monte’, which will lead us to the main part of this tour: The Abbey of Sacromonte, very rich in history and Works of art, and a place with a high religious value, specially for the gipsy population, of which still many families live in the caves, where they have settled since the occupation of Granada by the Christian Kings and where they still continue with their traditions, such as the typical Zambra dancing (gipsy flamenco). The former name of this area was ‘the valley of Paradise’, in those days and in these days a privileged place, with stunning views of the Alhambra.
