Description

The municipality of Trevélez is located in the north face of the Natural Park of Sierra Nevada, at 1,476 m of altitude, is one of the highest villages in Spain. Situated on the slopes of the Mulhacén, it is well known for its ham cured in the cold, clean air of this area.

The three districts, high, medium and low, which make up the town, joined together in harmony down to the river Trevelez, whisper of crystal water filled with trout.

The eye of the traveler is limited to the white peaks of Sierra Nevada and the stunning cliffs, always painted green by the singular vegetation, an ideal place for hiking, and then rest in one of the bars of the village, enjoying also the essential feature that defines the image of Las Alpujarras: a unique architecture in their homes, perfectly adapted to the broken terrain and climate of the area, which are arranged in narrow streets where the memory lingers of the Moorish past.
