Full-day Trip to the Alpujarra in Granada

La Alpujarra de Granada (sometimes Las Alpujarras de Granada) is a mountainous district in Southern Spain, which stretches south from the Sierra Nevada mountains near Granada in the autonomous region of Andalusia.

The western part of the region lies in the province of Granada and the eastern part in the province of Almería. In older sources the name is sometimes spelled Alpuxarras; it may derive from Arabic al Busherat meaning “the grass-land.”

This excursion not only includes interesting cultural elements but is also recommended for those interested in nature and landscape since it is placed in the area of Sierra Nevada mountains on the Mediterranean.

The climate variety here has made the Alpujarras one of the most important areas in Europe for botanists, because of the variety of species to be found.

We must also take into account the important Moorish cultural heritage, the characteristic landscape made up of small white villages with their earthen, flat-roofed houses, and their small terraces cut into the mountainside for farming, some of which are over 2.000 metres above sea level. All of these aspects combine to make a visit to this unique area a must.

We will visit Lanjaron, a famous spa town with its medical waters, and Orgiva, the central town of this mountainous region. We also visit a series of picturesque villages such as Carataunas, Pampaneira, Pitres, Portugos with its Fuente Agria or bitter spring water, and Trevelez, the highest village in Spain. We shall then continue through Bubion to Capileira, where a typical lunch will be served.
