South of Granada, on the road that links Motril and the coast with the city of the Alhambra, at 860 m above sea level lies the pass named Suspiro del Moro; from that point, towards the coast opens up the Valle de Lecrí­n, which lies west of Sierra Nevada, and south of the valley rests the mountain range of Los Guájares. It enjoys its own microclimate with strong and beneficial winds providing the beautiful scenery of Mediterranean agriculture.

To the west of this valley lies Albuñuelas, which borders a river with the same name.

History

Previously named Las Burnielas.

The so-called Andalusia Earthquake, which struck at Christmas in 1884, gravely affected the population of Albuñuelas, with several casualties in the neighbourhood, leaving 500 homes partially destroyed.
