Sacromonte - Review

Yet another noteworthy neighbourhood, this one is known more for its people than the architecture. This hilly area is called Sacromonte, which translates to “sacred mount”, and it is named after the Sacromonte Abbey which was built in 1600. But its origins date back to Roman times, where mines were cut into the hillside. These subsequently became catacombs and the current neighbourhood is built on them. Like most of Andalusia it was under Moorish rule, but in the 16th century relics emerged that proved its Christian history. These relics were later shown to be fabricated, though the saint attributed to them, Saint Cecilius, is still considered to be Granada’s patron saint and first bishop. More interesting is the fact that the hillsides are the traditional Gitano quarter of the city. The Gitano are the Spanish Romani, otherwise known as gypsies, and this area has the highest concentration of Romani in Spain. The caves on the hillside have been converted into simple homes by the Gitano community. The gypsies are renowned for the Flamenco dance and music, though the origins of Flamenco are purely Andalusian.
