Day Trip to the Alpujarra
« on: December 12, 2019, 01:57:16 AM »
If you are staying in Granada on of the best places to go for a day trip is the Alpujarra.

The Alpujarra  is the mountainous area on the south side of the Sierra Nevada.
It has amazing scenery, quaint little villages with whitewashed houses, balconies with flowers etc.

For more information about the Alpujarra click on this link.

Day Trip by Car
If you have your own car then you just have to head out of Granada on the motorway going south.  After a short time take the turn off towards Lanjaron.  Lanjaron itself is interesting but most people continue on up to the higher villages. Take a left just before Orgiva and you will be able to get to Pitres, Trevelez, Bubion, Pampaneira, Capileira etc.

Day Trip by Bus
There are buses from  Granada bus station.  Most people would catch the bus to one of the villages, walk around for a bit, take in the atmosphere, go for lunch then get the bus back. You could go to any village but I personally would choose either Pampaneira or Bubion for a bus trip from Granada. They have good views, easy to walk around and have some good restaurants.
