An inspiring tour across the amazingly beautiful Alpujarras with visits to Granada (Alhambra), Baeza, Úbeda and Cazorla
Across Andalusian mountains
The Alpujarras are the southernmost foothills of the majestic Sierra Nevada and a beautiful and fertile and unspoilt region where Europe's hippies went to in the late sixties (and are still there). Here we visit the picturesque villages of Capileira, Pampaneira and Bubión of the Poqueira Valley. This mountainous region is known for its hand-knotted colourful carpets and all kinds of artisanal products: from intricately carved leatherwear and beautifully handwoven textiles to honey, jam, cheese, and other delicacies.
We visit Trevélez, Spain's highest village and best known for its ‘ham houses’, where the famous jamon serrano is dried. Of course we also visit iconic Granada and its amazing must-see, the Alhambra, and elegant cathedral at the foot of the Sierra Nevada. We then continue our journey to some lesser known pearls in the heartland of Andalucía: the beautiful Renaissance ‘sister cities’ Baeza and Úbeda and last but certainly not least, Cazorla, a gorgeous white-washed town, glued to the majestic natural park of Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas where Spain’s ‘rio grande’, the Guadalquivir, is born.
