Video impression of Granada and the Alpujarras

This video only highlights three ´musts´ while visiting this region: Granada with the Alhambra and the Alpujarran villages Lanjarón, Pampaneira and Trevélez. The Alpujarras has more to offer than these villages. Nevertheless this video is one of the few well made videos we found on the internet.

Alpujarras events calendar

Here we have extracted the module ´events calendar´ from our website Apart from this calendar we dedicate this blog individual articles on events (see ALL ARTICLES ON EVENTS). This may take the form of an announcement (if we are informed in time) or a report.

Mulhacen winter ascent

The Mulhacen is not difficult to climb in summer and along the normal tracks. This excludes the northface. In winter the weather on the mulhacen decides if your yourney will be a fairytale or a disaster. We selected this video from youtube as example of a winter fairytale.

Webcam Lanjaron

Lanjarón is the western entrance to the Alpujarras. It lies 20 kilometers west from El Paraje as the crow flies. Although in a mountainous area all corners have their own character, this picture gives a fair idea about the weather conditions at the moment.
