Neighborhood: Sacromonte
Overview

There's only one mass per week, on Sunday at midday. The walk out from the Albayz along Camino del Sacromonte is well worth it. This was a popular pilgrimage route during the 17th century and the way was lined with stone crosses. People came to worship at the site where the bones of early Christian martyrs had been found, in an old Roman limekiln. During the guided tour of the Abbey, you'll be taken along underground passages to see where the bodies were found. There's a fabulous collection of religious art, important historical documents and old maps and plans of Granada on display in the museum and other rooms. Come on February 1st, St. Cecil's Day, for the pilgrimage, special mass and outdoor picnic.
