Description

The cliff called El Barranco del Poqueira, is one of the most visited natural spots in the province of Granada. This breathtaking setting on the southern slope of Sierra Nevada, which descends into unbelievable fall from the Veleta mountain, fit in the slopes three villages of unique beauty: Capileira, Bubión and Pampaneira.

Bubión is considered a historic-artistic centre and also has a hotel built by the Junta de Andalucí­a (regional government), "Villa Turística de Bubión". The village shares the typical features of all Alpujarra villages, i.e. a single type of architecture in the buildings, adapted to the structure of the land and to the climate of the area, which is characterized by narrow streets with memories of a Moorish past.

In the heart of the Alpujarra, this village is a part of the Natural Park of Sierra Nevada and is, without doubt, a place to include in the list of places to visit.
