The Granadian Alpujarra suprises us with beautiful scenery among almond trees and vineyards.
Due to its especially mountainous geography, the villages have been built on the uneven terrain, which is why its homes are staggered and oriented towards the south to take advantage of the good Mediterranean climate.
Among the towns in this area is Lanjarón, known for its medicinal mineral waters. Also there is Orgiva, a village rich in moorish heritage.
The Balcony of the Alpujarra, made up of the white villages of Cañar, Soportújar, and Carataunas, as well as the Barranco de Poqueira, with its villages Pampaneira, Bubión and Capileira are must visits in this area.
The gastronomy of the Alpujarra is highlighted by it meats and sausages, especially the Trevélez ham and also the traditional moorish pastry-making.
