Located in the Poqueira ravine, between the Mediterranean coast and Sierra Nevada, Capileira has a special charm, typical of the towns that are on Alpujarra's route.
Capileira has the typical appearance of the towns of the region of Alpujarra, Granada, with houses that have been adapted to the rugged terrain and the local climate, situated on narrow streets where the visitor can see the vestiges of the town's Moorish past. These cubic houses, are generally two storeys high, with a flat roof. In the city centre we find the Pedro Antonio de Alarcón Ethnological Museum, which exhibits the popular customs of the region of Alpujarra, and the church of Santa María la Mayor, from the 18th century.
