Description

The municipality of Órgiva is located on the south face of the Natural Park of Sierra Nevada. Situated in the depression of the Guadalfeo, where the river Guadalfeo meets its affluent, river Chico de Órgiva, lies this town also known as the capital of west Alpujarra.

A commercial town that traditionally has supplied all the region, mixes modern features in the layout and styles of life together with ancient characteristics of the Alpujarra, which makes this area a unique spot of the Spanish geography.

Órgiva, is not only the judicial, health and educative centre but also a communication link from where four roads depart, one linking La Alpujarra with Salobreña and the Costa del Sol; another, through Lanjarón, leading to Granada; a third one, through Torviscón, leading to the coast of Granada and finally, another that goes into the heart of the Alpujarra, ascending to PampaneiraBubiónCapileiraTrevélez and other mountain villages.
