The Laujar de Andarax Visitor Centre is in the heart of the Alpujarra of Almeria, next to the river from which it takes its name.

The importance of the water resources in the Sierra Nevada Nature Park is one of the central themes of the exhibition it houses. Here, a large hydrographic network supplied by the thawing summer is born that naturally divides the basin of the Guadalquivir into two slopes: North and South. The abundance of its underground waters which emanate in springs and spas was used for its traditional exploitation using irrigation systems, channels and crops cultivated on terraces. This is one of the important examples of Moorish culture in these surroundings, together with the roots of popular Alpujarra culture.

Furthermore, the exhibition highlights the importance of the mark left by other settlers, such as Castilians and Romans. The geological history of the foothills and a mineral exhibition aim to introduce visitors in the wealth and use of mining throughout history.
