Granada. Abadia del Sacromonte

The Sacromonte is one of the mystical districts in Granada. Walking up the Camino del Sacromonte, from the Cuesta del Chapiz, you will see a large stone cross, next to the chapel of the Santo Sepulcro. This is the route to the Sacromonte Abbey. Located on Mount Valparaiso, the Sacromonte Abbey shows us the cultural past of the city and is vital to understanding the history of Granada.
The complex has three main parts: the Abbey made in Seventeenth and Eighteenth centuries, the College of the Seventeenth Century and the Seminary.
Crossing the courtyard with 28 arches we enter a chapel which has a small altar by the entrance, leading to several caves in which were found a number of relics and texts from the Sixteenth Century.
