Pampaniera, Las Alpujarras, Andalucia, Spain

Las Alpujarras are a range of beautiful whitewashed high mountain villages perched and dotted around the Southern side of the steep slopes of the domineering Sierra Nevada. Precariously clinging to the side of the mountain, sheltered in deep gorges, the villages enjoy extreme weather conditions (for Spain), high altitude typically 4,000 feet above sea level, glorious elevated views, ideal walking terrain and their very own mini eco system of fertile farmlands watered by the melting snow, directed through an ancient range of acqueous, or aqueducts. The Alpujarras are a hub for foreigners seeking an alternative lifestyle, tourists, ecologists and hikers and can be easily accessed from Granada or the Costa Tropical by following the A44.
