Hi Suchitra, I have been to the caves in Granada about 10 years ago, a friend was living there and I went to visit during ‘la semana santa’ (holy week at Easter). During that week there were a lot of different processions day and night and it was really amazing; the
Gypsies had their own procession 1 night and it was pretty wild, loads of flamenco being played and danced….
I think it is normally pretty quiet the rest of the year, you can rent a room in the caves as far as i can remember (my friend lived there for a year while she was doing an university exchange); that will probably the best way to experience the caves and make friends with the gypsies… i remember them being quite wary but my friend knew them and so they were pretty cool and friendly towards us!
Enjoy! it is an amazing place as it is the rest of Andalucia.
