Lújar is a small mountain village located between the Granada Alpujarras and the Costa Tropical on the south face of Sierra de Lújar. It has a mild climate with beneficial winds that provide views of serene beauty with prosperous Mediterranean cultivation.

History

The history of this village runs in parallel to that of other coastal villages in Granada with traces of an important commercial role when the first Mediterranean civilizations were spreading. It had moments of maximum splendour in the Arab Andalusian period due to the efficient handling of agricultural resources. It suffered from depopulation after the Moors were expelled, and the uncertain period that followed with constant fear of incursions by Berber pirates along the coastline. Presently, these villages have recovered their past prosperity thanks to the tropical-agricultural development and to the enchantment of the AREA for tourists.
