Here you will also find Spain’s highest village at 1,486 metres, Trevelez, which is famous for its snow-cured ham.

The air is heavy with the scent of honeysuckle which cascades over the walls. In spring, the aroma of almond blossom wafts through Las Alpajarras and the countryside turns shades of pink and white. Much of the traditional way of life remains unchanged within Las Alpujarras: herds of goats wander the hill-sides and mules and donkeys are still widely used both for transport and farming  While walking, hiking or horse-riding through the beautiful mountains, take time to enjoy the breathtaking and far-reaching views. You may stumble across wild boar or see eagles soaring through the clear-blue skies as well.
