La Alpujarra is located between Sierra Nevada, the Sierra de Lújar and the Sierra de Gádor, opening onto the Mediterranean from Mulhacén, the highest peak in the Iberian Peninsula.
With an abrupt and colorful landscape, its orography is furrowed by ravines, gorges, and valleys, where the towns of this region rest, and sometimes climb. The beauty of these towns is only one of its many attractions. Lanjarón, a spa town famous for the longevity and good health of its inhabitants, is the door to the Alpujarra wonders. Trevélez, the highest municipality in Europe, is known above all for its exquisite hams. Another of the main tourist destinations in the Poqueira ravine, where the towns of Pampaneira, Bubión and Capileira are located. They say that this is an area of goblins and sorceresses, in addition to the smell of olive and trout with ham. Full day with lunch in a typical Alpujarra restaurant included knowing the beautiful region of La Alpujarra. Our visit begins in Pampaneira and Trevélez, a town known for the drying of hams since it is located in one of the highest points in the Sierra Nevada, with a visit to the ham drying room included. Continuation of the trip to Pórtugos where the Fuente Agria stands out. In the afternoon we will visit Pampaneira, a town located in the Poqueira ravine, and which, together with Bubión and Capileira, is declared a Historic-Artistic Site. All three maintain the Berber aspect in the architecture of their houses and streets. We will continue our trip to Lanjarón, a town that summarizes all the beauty of this region and that keeps the best climate in the valley. Return to Granada.
