This road that connects Almería and Granada through Las Alpujarras is one of the most varied and surprising routes in Europe. Its fascinating landscape of orchards planted with vegetables and fruit trees is mixed with chestnut, oak and holm oaks, mostly part of the Sierra Nevada National Park.
Your Trip to Granada should undoubtedly incorporate into the itinerary this private experience in one of the most beautiful, quiet and relaxing corners, the Route of Las Alpujarras, an experience that takes us to Berber villages in southern Europe, where the moorish legado and of Castilian repopulators it remains alive. Its unique architecture, with its steep streets, dotted with the typical Alpujarra terraos and tinaos, chimneys with a hat and its fountains and laundries, will not leave anyone indifferent.
The thousand-year-old ditches that collect the water from the Sierra Nevada irrigate the orchards of our landscape as in the past. Its typical dishes and famous Moorish pastries will also delight our senses.
We find towns chosen as the most beautiful in Spain. Quiet, relaxing, calm, with flavor and a different way of living.
