Las Alpujarras


Alpujarra Granadina
Alpujarra en Granada
Alpujarra alta

Las Alpujarras in Granada and Almería in Andalusia, Spain; is a valley that stretches from west to east, along the southern slope of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

Whitewashed villages are separated by regular distances of five to ten kilometres, at an average height of one thousand meters above sea level. Around the villages small scale agriculture is being maintained.

Because of high reaching mountains there is always water running down via an ingenious system of water canals dating from moorish times. This gives the Alpujarras valley an unique mixture of agricultural developed landscape within unspoiled nature.

Ideal for a walking holiday or hiking excursions, trekking the grande randonnée Gr7 and Sulayr trail, birdwatching, horseback riding, biking or skiing in the Sierra Nevada mountains during the winter months.

Ecotourism or agritourism vacations have become popular in the Alpujarras valley. The wider Sierra Nevada region has probably the most natural diversity in Europe!
