Departing early in the morning for Alpujarra Granadina where magnificent landscapes showcase almond trees, vineyards and sunny terraces.

Paved and sinuous roads are an invitation to walk around, breath the fresh air and enjoy the peace and tranquility.

After that, we’ll go to Órgiva, of Mauresque influence, Soportújar, Carataunas, and the road to Barranco de Poqueira where you can visit alongside the population of Pampaneira.

Well known by Arabs for its medicinal properties, this water contains iron and carbon dioxide giving it a distinctive spicy flavour.
