From Granada: Day Trip Through Alpujarra

1. From Granada: Day Trip Through Alpujarra

Begin by heading south towards Lanjarón, the first city of the Alpujarra region. The route will continue through impressive landscapes until reaching Pampaneira, one of the highest cities in Spain and Europe. Here, enjoy the breathtaking views of the Poqueira Valley and take the most incredible photographs. After visiting this town, descend to Bubión, a city founded in Roman times, where you can walk through narrow streets and white houses. Then, your group will follow the route to Capileira, one of the most picturesque villages of La Alpujarra and Andalusia. Visit the interpretation center where a professional will explain everything you've seen on this excursion. Finally, visit a typical working house in the Alpujarra, where you will learn about the methods of production and their way of life.

From Granada: Sierra Nevada & Alpujarra Private Day Trip

2. From Granada: Sierra Nevada & Alpujarra Private Day Trip

In this excursion I want to show you one of those places that you will keep in your memory forever: the Alpujarra of Granada. After arranging a meeting point, I will pick you up in my vehicle to drive for approximately 1.5 hours to the first of the 3 villages we will visit: Pampaneira. Pampaneira is one of those beautiful white villages that seem to be hanging in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. We will walk through its streets to get to know the curious and particular architecture of this region. We will enter some of its stores to know the local handicraft products: "jarapas" (carpets), honey, chocolate... After Pampaneira, the next village awaits us: Bubión. Here I would like to tell you about the fundamental role that this area played in the past: wars between Muslims and Christians, forced conversions and a legacy that still lasts. In Bubión we can visit the "Museo Casa Alpujarreña" (entrance included) where we will visit a house that has changed little over the years, so we can understand much better how people lived in the Alpujarra. Finally, we will finish our excursion in the highest village we visit, Capileria, at 1,436 meters above sea level, we will have a spectacular view of the valley, Sierra Nevada and even the Mediterranean Sea. Lunch is not included. You will have the option to bring your own picnic or follow the recommendations I will give you to try the local gastronomy.

This was a great trip to the white villages of the Alpujarra. Our guide Rafa was very knowledgable and friendly. We stopped for a great lunch and had some free time to wander around one of the villages to look at the amazing architecture and views. I would highly recommend this tour.

Highly recommended excursion, visiting three of the most beautiful towns in Spain. The guides were great, making the visit very enjoyable. The place where we ate was spacious and the food excellent.

We were very good. We saw things that if not with this tour we would never imagine having seen. We loved it!!! You could tell that the guide enjoyed teaching what he likes.

The very nice destination, the very kind driver explained the things we saw well. We also had an aperitif offered at noon.
