BotónThe county | The Alpujarra

Located in Andalusia, a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean, La Alpujarra is steep, mountainous land that takes up part of the Granada and Almería provinces.  Surrounded by magnificent landscapes, it enjoys a climate that fluctuates between subtropical in the least elevated areas, to Alpine in the high peaks and upper valleys of the tall mountains.  The temperatures and precipitation make a fan that goes from the summer dryness to the abundant precipitation in autumn and winter, as a function of the altitude or more or less eastern position.

Splashed with outstandingly charming villages, with Bereber influences, the county maintains its singularity, its urban elements just as much as its traditional customs. 

Full of history, during the reign of Philip II a bitter conflict arose between the Moorish and Christian troops that destroyed the region.  This clash created mythical characters like the leader Aben Humeya. 

Books

In the 19th century Pedro Antonio de Alarcón described these places in the his work, "Las Alpujarras: sesenta leguas a caballo precedidas de seis en diligencia".

In the 20th century, the Hispanist Gerald Brenan depicted the landscapes, traditions and characters that inhabited this magnificent setting with witticism and humor.

During the 70’s, la Alpujarra was affected by an intense emigration.  Currently activities from the past are joined with tourist activities, creating a point of reference for all of those that want to enjoy nature, tranquility, and the culture.
