  • We visit in August three villages of the alpujarras, Capileira, Pampaneira and Bubión and three very beautiful and charming. Others I can not comment since I not visited them. My opinion is that if you decide to visit all such saturation curve.

  • Pampaneira. A good map, pills for the dizziness (if the need) and much patience are three essential to arrive to this beautiful village. Especially the last stretch of the tour is criminal for which are prone to dizzy us, but deserves it worth the suffering. An hour of Orgiva, you find yourself with this beauty. Streets of no more than one meter wide, where only the most courageous riders dare to walk are their vehicles, some by the little stream that runs through many of its streets. PS: The best to visit this and other peoples forming the Alpujarra is do it from first thing in the morning... and never the last day that you pass in Granada lands, or you could fall into the temptation to extend your vacation.

  • Las Alpjarras, a foothills of the Sierra Nevada, is a nice place to the hiking, cycling or comfortable with the car. Beautiful places, spectacular roads and the opportunity to see beautiful rugs and purchase. High point is the highest village in Spain, supposedly Trevélez. Famous for its Serano ham. Note that it takes longer than you think on the road. lot are 40-50 km per hour. So, take your time
