Autonomous region:




At the foot of Sierra Nevada, facing the Mediterranean, is a land that was the dwelling of the Muslims for over eight hundred years.

This land is La Alpujarra, a tiny corner of the Kingdom of Granada that still keps the Islamic stamp practically intact, a slice of the Orient in the extreme West.
Cube-shaped stepped houses, terraced cropland, villages hanging on the sides of the mountains, incredible countryside and a wide range of leisure activities.With a peculiar indiosyncrasy, reflected in its local architecture and in the forms of life of its inhabitants, La Alpujarra is a varied and different place, of a marked rural nature while remaining open and hospitable, used to receiving visitors from far and wide.
The GR 142 runs through a large part of La Alpujarra, over the province of Granada and Almería to cross the sierra to the north when this becomes more accessible.
