Panoramic view of Orgiva in Granada (Andalusia)



Órgiva, the administrative and economic capital of the western side of the region of Alpujarra, has managed to combine in its urban development both a modern life style, and a rich historical heritage that reached our days almost intact.

A remarkable example is the church of Nuestra Señora de la Expectación, a 16th-century temple with two identical towers that can be seen from the distance; the palace of the Duke of Arco, from the 16th century, the palatial house of the counts of Sástago, and the remains of the Benisalfe windmills, from the 15th century.
