Granada is a province in the south of Spain. Located in the eastern part of the autonomous region of Andalucia its Mediterranean coastline is known as the Costa Tropical. The region is characterised by extreme variables in landscape and climate, so much so that in one day it is possible to ski at the Sierra Nevada resort and dive into the Mediterranean sea at Motril!

The capital is the city of Granada with its spectacular backdrop of the Sierra Nevada's snowy peaks. The city is dominated by the Alhambra, an exquisitely designed and decorated Moorish palace that exemplifies the zenith of Muslim art and architecture. The hill facing the Alhambra is the old Moorish casbah or "medina", called the Albaicin, a fascinating labyrinth of narrow streets and whitewashed houses with secluded inner gardens, known as "cármenes". The Plaza de San Nicolas, at the highest point of the Albaicin, is famous for its magnificent views.

The Sierra Nevada is the second highest mountain range in Europe and its national park is an uninhabited rugged wilderness with snow on its peaks for most of the year. It has Europe's most southerly ski resort and superb climbing and mountaineering opportunities. The ski resort is typically open for five months.

The southern foothills of the Sierra Nevada are known as the Alpujarras. It is an area of the most stunning scenery, beautiful whitewashed villages with distinctive Berber architecture and excellent hiking territory. The capital of the Alpujarras is Órgiva. The cultural interest of the region lies in its fifty or so villages, which were the last stronghold of the Spanish Muslims, or Moors. Soon after the Castillians took Granada in 1492, all the city´s Moors were forced to convert to Christianity. Those who refused took to the hills, settling in this remote, inaccessible area.

The Costa Tropical enjoys approximately 320 days of sunshine yearly and an average temperature of 20ºC. The combination of its micro-climate, tropical vegetation, geographical and topographical aspects, and its rich, multi-cultural (Phoenician, Roman, Greek, and Arab) history make the Costa Tropical one of the most interesting areas of Spain, and of Andalucia in particular. The Costa Tropical is still very Spanish. Its people are warm, friendly and family-loving.....qualities that are fast disappearing. Once you have visited this part of the world, you will probably be back again....and again....and maybe stay for good like so many others have already. This strip of coastline is indeed special.

Órgiva, Andalusien, Spanien

Órgiva (pronounced: OR-khi-ba) is the capital of the Alpujarras, 450m above sea level with an eclectic population of about 6,000 living a bohemian lifestyle. It nestles in a valley between two mighty mountain ranges; the snow-covered Sierra Nevada to the north and the Sierra Lújar to the south, both with peaks of over 2,000 metres. The río Guadalfeo runs south of the town on its way down to the sea and passes under the Puente Siete Ojos (Seven Eyes Bridge).

It is a unique place immortalised by Gerald Brenan in “South from Granada” and characterised by Chris Stewart in “Driving over Lemons” and “Parrot in a Pepper Tree”. The writings of these authors were inspired by the area which has its own unique mini-ecology.

Órgiva hosts a weekly market held every Thursday. It has some small supermarkets and other shops that will serve most of your everyday needs. There are restaurants, cafes and bars to quench the thirst and stifle the hunger of the day.

The Low Alpujarras climate is Mediterranean with a subtropical influence. Temperatures are mild for most of the year. Hot summers are pleasant by night. Frosts are rare in winter; winters tend to be short and the occasion for irregular rainy periods.

The region is rich in Arab descent and was the last holding place of the Moors before it fell to Christian conquest in the 16th century. A lasting legacy from the Moors is the huge network of water channels called acequias that carry the melting snow waters down the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada providing welcome irrigation for the countryside and farms.

The area is simply stunning and invites mind-boggling scenic adventures. Its location makes Órgiva an ideal base from which to explore the area. The Mediterranean coast is a 30 minute drive, Granada a 45 minute drive, the white-washed villages of the high Alpujarra a 20 minute drive. The Sierra Nevada ski resort is a 2 hour drive so you can be skiing in the morning and sunbathing on one the many Costa Tropical beaches in the afternoon.

There are many activities from walking the acequias to bungee jumping, water parks to mountain cycling. There are many places to visit from fantastic cities to small villages clinging to steep mountain sides, from coastal towns and villages to the rugged beauty of the Sierra Nevada and Lújar mountains.
