The Alpujarras

The Alpujarras Tour for individuals starts in Granada. On the motorway for 30 minutes we turn off at the exit to the region of Valle de Lecrín. The access is through the canyon over which the Nasrid bridge "Puente del Tablate" still stands. This centenary monument reminds us that the access to this area is difficult, and therefore, the etymological idea of Alpujarras, as the "Indomitable" or impossible to conquer area, is justified.

Mineral Water Fountains in Lanjarón

The Alpujarras are a source of a thousand filtrations from the mineral water table of the Betic mountain range. The melting snow melt flows through infinite channels into the very bowels of the rocky massif of the Sierra Nevada. This water, together with an eroded earth rich in metals, makes the region, bathed by the temperate Mediterranean, an exclusive "patchwork" of terraces cultivated with rich fruit trees, chestnut trees, mulberry trees, cherries, apple trees, orange trees, pomegranate trees, avocado trees and many other fruits. But the best known of the region is undoubtedly the mineral water of "Lanjarón". The Alpujarras are a source of a thousand filtrations from the mineral water table of the Betic mountain range.

From the exit to Lanjarón, the road winds through endless curves on a mountain road, but on a road (a natural park and national park in its turn) with a good and safe layout.

Municipalities and points of interest

We consider it essential to visit Lanjarón, capital of water, gateway between the Lecrín valley and the Alpujarra Baja. We always go to the valley of the river Poqueira, where we can see Pampaneira, Bubión and Capileira. With time there is also the Tahá de Pitres, Pórtugos, Busquistar, Capilerilla, Trevélez, Ferreirola, Atalbéitar and so many other places that it is necessary, for lovers of rural life, to organise stays with overnight stays in order to enjoy the region in all its angles and in all its extension.
