Route of Las Alpujarras

from Almería to Granada

 

This route connects Granada and Almeria through a series of spots that allow the traveller to visit the landscapes of Sierra Nevada, Sierra de Gádor and Contraviesa mountain ranges. Las Alpujarras region stretches across the provinces of Almeria and Granada.

This region borders Sierra Nevada on the north and the Mediterranean Sea on the south. Its characteristic isolation is the reason for its ethnology and historical peculiarities. This is why La Alpujarra became a resistance enclave against the Islam, and it was also the last stronghold for the Moriscos.

Remains of ancient medieval fortresses (watchtowers, castles, forts and towers) as well as a valuable archaeological heritage from the Muslim period can be admired all along the way.

This route between Almería and Granada throughout Las Alpujarras region is really one of the most varied and surprising in Europe. From the Mediterranean Sea to the Genil River fertile plain, the route get across deserts like Tabernas, in the face of which no one can remain impassive, oasis, and Sierra Nevada national park, with high peaks such as Mulhacén and Veleta.
