In this experience, we can expect: gastronomy, tradition, ways of life, nature, the incredible hydraulic infrastructure, and much more. Its streets and squares. Its fountains, washhouses, and tinaos.
After crossing the Tablate Bridge, already within the Alpujarra region, the first village where we will stop for breakfast is Lanjarón, famous for the quality of its medicinal waters, which give rise to one of Spain’s most highly-rated spas.
Lanjarón possesses the essential characteristic that defines the image of Alpujarran villages: a unique architecture in its houses, perfectly adapted to the rugged terrain and the climate of the area, arranged along narrow streets where the memory of its Moorish past endures.
The excursion continues towards Pampaneira, in the heart of the Poqueira Ravine, still retaining most of the distinctive features of the region. During the visit, we recognize its narrow and steep cobbled streets with water channels in the center, its traditional white houses with terraces and tinaos, or its looms and local craft shops.
Capileira, with its location and an altitude of almost one and a half thousand meters, offers us the best views of the ravine from the various viewpoints it possesses. From here, we can also enjoy spectacular panoramas of the peaks of Mulhacén and Veleta.
In Capileira, scattered throughout the village, we find several viewpoints, of which it is said that on sunny days, we can see all the way to the mountains of Africa.
As an optional extension to a 6-hour excursion, we can enjoy an additional two hours in the heart of the Alpujarra, starting with the town of Pórtugos, where it is not the facades and flower pots that give fame to the village, but the iron-rich waters of the Fuente Agria, with a curious “spicy” taste and great health benefits (liver, stomach, intestines, kidneys). After drinking the waters, we must not miss the Chorrerón de Pórtugos, the beautiful waterfall we will find on the other side of the road. To reach it, you have to descend no less than 80 steps.
As the end of our excursion, we visit Trevélez, the highest village in Spain and home to the highest vineyards in Europe. It produces the famous Jamón de Trevélez, cured at high altitudes and enjoying Protected Geographical Indication status due to its extremely high quality and flavor.
