Las Alpujarras, Sierra Nevada National Park

4.6
#2 of 14 in Things to do in Sierra Nevada National Park
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.

    Very very beautiful villages, streets ahead, flowering, typical... Not feasible for people with disabilities because it's steep and sloping... Capileira is one of the most beautiful in our opinion.

    bustling, beautiful village worth visiting for its beauty and for souvenirs typiques.s' is a stop for hikers but it is also nice to simply wander the streets of a drink on the lovely place.

    Is nice, especially villages such as Lanjaron... But in terms of landscape is a little bare all, little tree.
