Along the eastern wall that surrounds Albayzín, among the century plants and paddle cacti the Sacromonte caves spread. It is a quarter built into the mountain, the origin of which is uncertain, although experts claim that the first inhabitants were “Moriscos”, who were joined by gypsies following the Catholic Monarchs as they conquered the city. Those gypsies worked as craftsmen and cattleherds. Artists were also among them, establishing the roots of flamenco music, blending it with musical influences of the time, such as the pre-nuptial rites of Granada’s Moorish community. From this melting pot the Zambras were born, and those we know today still include in their repertoire traditional dances and songs such as “La Alboreá”, “La Cachuchá” and “La Mosca”.
