Las Alpujarras, Sierra Nevada National Park

4.6
#2 of 11 in Nature in Province of Granada
The mountainous region of Las Alpujarras offers some of Andalucía’s best hiking and mountain biking and is full of charming villages to explore. Set off on a walk and enjoy the lush vegetation, a result of the melting snow above, and spot local wildlife. Visit the picturesque villages, which were the last strongholds of the Moors. Purchase local crafts and sample some of the area’s food products, including Serrano ham, which is cured in several of the villages. Las Alpujarras is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Sierra Nevada National Park Edition.
