Located in Barranco de los Negros, in the Sacromonte neighborhood in Granada, opposite the Alhambra, is the Museo Cuevas del Sacromonte, or the Sacromonte Caves Museum. A steep climb off the Camino del Sacromonte, the cave museums showcase the dwellings and history and evolution of the inhabitants of the caves; the persecuted gypsy population who found sanctuary in caves carved into the hills of Granada. This specialty museum is a great way for visitors to observe what the lives of the cave-dwelling gypsies would have been like. Visitors will come across a series of exhibits, ranging from kitchens to workshops filled with furniture, tools and pottery; all located in actual caves.
