Located in the Lower Alpujarra, close to the Mediterranean coastline, it enjoys a mild subtropical climate propitious for growing figs and vineyards that produce the well-known local wine.
Some parts of this municipality, like Castillo de Baños and La Mamola, are on the coast. The latter houses the Town Hall and municipal services.
HistoryIn the Nasrid period it must have been part of the Taha del Gran Cehel, which had Almegíjar as head of this region. After the fall of the Muslim kingdom of Granada, the Catholic Monarchs granted King Boabdil a large part of the Alpujarra region, including Polopos as stated in the capitulation records. This village returned to the Castilian Crown after Boabdil left on exile to the north of Africa.
Documents from the 19th century referring to Polopos, describe it as a prosperous place due to the production of raisins, wine and liquors.
