After catching our breaths and delighting ourselves over what was my best view of a sunset EVER, our guide said it was dark and time to get those flashlights on our heads so we could keep adventuring. Me super excited to have a flashlight attached to my head. For some reason it made me feel very adventurous!
By the time we reached street light again, we were in the legal homes of Sacramonte and I was happier than ever for that damn dark hill to be over and I was still hanging on with all my bones intact.
Me: WHAT? Why would you say that?
Guide: I had to say something cool!
Me: Ok I'm going to the middle. In films something always happens to the person who stays behind!
We start walking and by some reason I was in front of the line, even in front of the tour guide, and weird sounds came off the woods.
Me: Well...going to the middle now!
Me: Oh my God! I'm going to die tonight!
Guide: You're not going to die. If you die I die first! You don't have to get in if you don't want to.
Me: You just said there were girls killed here. I'm not staying out here alone!
I'm pretty sure I kick ass at the drama queen thing! I'm sorry, but I get scared really, really easily.
We eventually had to go down, and I can assure you it's scarier to go down than go climb! My feet kept slipping, I had no safe place to walk and I was scared to fall down, but again, amazing people in my group and the guide kept helping me get to the ground safe.
If you're ever in Granada, this is THE tour you have to take. It costs 25€, but if you buy in advance at the bus station, you only pay 15€ for 3h of guaranteed fun, adventure, pushing your limits and overcoming fears. You'll get to walk the Albayzin neighborhood of Granda, see some places you actually can't miss during your visit to the city, but ones that are hard to get to if you're not familiar with the place. You'll get to see an amazing sunset from the top of the Sacramonte's hill, you'll get down, in pitch black super scary way, along the ilegal gypsy caves. Get to pass by the best places to watch Flamenco in the city (and the good one! Not the touristic, super crowded!). You'll walk in the middle of the woods, get inside underground tunnels, and you'll meet great people that will help you on your way, and with whom you might end the night eating tapas with.
