The Andalucia region
Granada got its current name when the Arabs invaded the Iberian peninsular in the 8th century and it was the last city to fall to the christians in 1492. It has many wonderful buildings from this time including the Cathedral with the Royal chapel, the Monastery of La Cartuja and many churches built in the unique 'Mudejar' style. The hill facing the Alhambra is the old Moorish casbah, called the Albaicin, a maze of narrow streets and whitewashed houses with inner courtyards, all beautifully tiled. At its highest point is the Plaza de San Nicolas, famous for its splendid view of the Alhambra palace.
The Alhambra Palace is often hailed as the most exciting, sensual and romantic of all European monuments. Set on a wooded hill above the city, it was built in the 14th century by the sultans of Granada. It represents the splendid climax of Moorish art but, much more than this, it also reveals the brilliance and spirit of their culture at a time when the rest of Europe was only just emerging from the Dark Ages. It is a series of palaces & gardens built in the 14th century the main ones being the Generalife, or summer palace, with its magnificent fountains and in the centre the massive Palace of Charles V.
Las Alpujarras :
This is the region that lies between the Sierra Nevada range and the sea. Perched on the steep sides of the mountains with fast flowing streams and wooded valleys are many beautiful towns and villages. Bubion,Pampaneira and Capileira are three delightful villages with a magnificent position in the Poqueira gorge which are well worth visiting visiting. Higher still is Trevelez, Spain's highest inhabited village, where some of the best cured ham(jamon serrano) is produced.
The Costa Tropical
It has a unique coastline, just 1 hour away, and is different to any other part of southern Spain Here rugged hills thrust up steeply from valley floors or plunge spectacularly into the sea. The three main coastal towns are Motril, Salobrena and Almunecar all offering different attractions but Almunecar is the most important holiday resort in the province. It has been significantly developed over the last few years but not to the extent of resorts on the Costa del Sol. It retains a pleasantly laidback atmosphere & the old town , founded as a fishing settlement by the Phoenicians in the first millennium BC, remains delightfully untouched. This is a good sized town with a large variety of shops & covered market for high quality fresh produce plus a street market every friday. The locals are very fond of their fiestas and there are huge parades each day in the week leading up to Easter. Also worth a visit is the beautiful bay of La Herradura which has many bars/restaurants on the beach. There are Diving schools, paragliding, dinghy and windsurfer rental.
A true mountain village set amongst stunning scenery just 15 kilometres from Granada and 20 to the ski slopes of Pradolino. It has a typical mountain atmosphere, relaxed and welcoming the village centre being a labyrinth of tiny streets and passageways in true 'Andaluz' style. The village is extremely well catered for with 3 Mini-markets, a variety of other shops and banks.
Local Cuisine, Bars and Restaurants :
Although Guejar Sierra is only a large village it can boast a dozen Tapas bars and a number of delightful restaurants serving a variety of local dishes. You will find in our 'Welcome book' a list of all the best places to go and a description of the place and the type of food served.
There are many walks starting in and around Guejar Sierra with detailed maps and guides to time and difficulty available at the tourist office. One famous walk is the Via Verde, a former mountain railway line which has been converted to a 6km long walking and cycling track starting at the river Genil below the village and heading up the valley.
