Welcome to Eastern Alpujarras
The central and eastern reaches of the Granada Alpujarras reveal a harsher, barer landscape. Their small villages – Bérchules, Cádiar, Mecina Bombarón, Yegen, Válor, Mairena – provide oases of greenery but for the main part this is tough mountain country. Significantly fewer tourists make it this far, and those who do are often on long, solitary hiking expeditions – the long-distance GR7 path traverses the area. Much of the pleasure in travelling here lies in enjoying the local food at casual restaurants and inns.
