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.
