Have a look at our accommodation El Diamante de Orgiva, for your stay in Orgiva.
Orgiva is a rural, rustic town, where tourists from the other mountain towns and villages come to have a drink or a meal. It has a pleasant, lively centre with various terraces, bars and restaurants. The church in Baroc style is one of the well-known sites. Famous is the local market that takes place every Thursday. Here locally-grown fruits and vegetables are offered and the hippies sell their home-made wares.
Orgiva is central situated. From Orgiva you can easily visit the amazing beaches of the ‘Costa Tropical’ for example; Nerja, Motril, Salobreña, or the beautiful cities like Granada, for shopping or bring a visit to the historic Alhambra.
Just a few places in the province of Granada offer such a wide range of values in terms of landscape, nature and culture as The Alpujarras. The beauty of its landscapes, monuments in villages as Orgiva or Lanjaron or outstanding spots as the Poqueira gully have attracted artists, writers, scientists and curious people who dived into the daily habits of these ancient locations tracing back to the legacy of the last Moorish populations after the Spanish reconquest.
‘Sebastián Pérez, President of the Diputación de Granada’
Alpujarras is a true mountain region. Unlike in the rest of Andalucia you will find the traditional way of living in the remote mountain villages.
The bakery still smells of yeast, flour and fresh bread, and chimneys recycle smoke from burning firewood. Old men travel on horseback and edit with mules the country. Tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbage, oranges, almonds are growing against the slopes. Clear water from the mountains flows over the terraced fields through a centuries-old inventive system of small irrigation canals: acequias. In these acequias, the building, crafts and traditional cuisine, you will see the Spanish history of Spain.
