La Alpujarra has some of the most beautiful towns in Spain that still preserve the way of building and the customs of the ancient Moors who one day took refuge in this region before their final expulsion around the year 1610.

We will access by a winding mountain road located at the foot of the Veleta and Mulhacén peaks to reach the town of Lanjarón, famous for the quality of its mineral water, recognized for more than 250 years.

Before the road really begins to put our stomachs to the test, we will make a stop in Soportújar. A small town that stands out for its route around witchcraft, with sculptures, museums and symbols throughout the town. As the Galicians say, who by the way were the ones who mostly repopulated this area after the expulsion of the Moors, “I don’t believe in the meigas, but there are them.”

We are now preparing ourselves to enter the heart of the Alpujarra, towards the towns of Pampaneira, Bubión and Capileira. All three maintain the white buildings of Moorish origin, with flat roofs (terraos) and houses connected to each other by the so-called “tinaos”.

We are facing what are some of the most beautiful towns in Spain, with spectacular corners to photograph and why not to sit and meditate with birds and herds as a soundtrack.

We will make a stop at a nearby viewpoint to have the best views of the Poqueira Ravine, to contemplate the three aligned towns.

We will also visit Pórtugos and its source with medicinal properties (Fuente Agria) until we reach Trevélez, the highest town on the peninsula and also famous for the quality of its hams.

Our last stop, starting the descent, will be in Capileria, where a well-deserved lunch will take place that we know as “Alpujarreño Dish”: Eggs, potatoes, chorizo, blood sausage … in short, mountain food …

Before returning, we can visit the local craft shops and workshops, where we recommend above all the jarapas and wickers as well as the ham and local sweets … to taste later at the hotel …
