Sacromonte – Silla del Moro

6.5 km   2 hours   219 m   Easy   Easy   Easy    

Most of our hikes are in the mountains, but there are also some lovely walks that start or finish in the city of Granada. This short circuit begins and ends in Plaza Nueva, right in the heart of the city centre. The Mirador de la Silla del Moro viewpoint offers great views of Sacromonte and the Albaicín, and later on you get lovely views up to the mountains and then down to the Alhambra.

Level After the initial climb, a fairly gentle walk on good quality tracks and paths, with a few on-road sections. It is not signposted so you will need to follow the directions in the walk information sheet or use a GPS.

When to go All year round, but better to go in the early morning or evening in summer to avoid the worst of the heat.
