Sacromonte

The Sacromonte district (0.9 miles away from the hotel) is the traditional neighbourhood of the Granadin gypsies where you can hear their very own dialect, Calé, although few people use it nowadays. Calé came from India after immigrants from there arrived in Spain in the Fifteenth century after having travelled around Europe and Africa. Caves are the characteristic form of housing in Sacromonte and many of them are inhabited by gypsies, artists and foreigners.
