La Mairena

Mairena which, together with Laroles, Picena and the village of Júbar, is part of the municipality of Nevada, is located at the eastern end of the Alpujarra Alta Granada, near the port of La Ragua, the only step between the northern and southern slopes of Sierra Nevada.

It enjoys the essential characteristic that defines the image of the Alpujarra peoples: a unique architecture in their homes, perfectly adapted to the broken terrain and the climate of the area, which are arranged in narrow streets where the memory of their Moorish past lasts.

As part of its territory of the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, where the highest peaks of Spanish territory rise, it is an ideal place for long walks through these splendid landscapes.
