Start: Granada Finish: Granada
Today you travel to Granada and meet your driver for the transfer to Capileira, chief village of the region, situated at an elevation of 1436m. Its lovely monuments, tiny squares and narrow lanes recall the village's history as a former Moorish settlement. Settle in at your small mountain hotel and begin to take in the atmosphere.
Route through the Río Poqueira Valley, from Capileira via Bubion to Pampaneira. You walk among fields, passing ancient threshing circles, with some steep ascents and descents. Enjoying marvellous views all the while.
Challenge: 5 hours; 9 km; 560m ascent/descent
Transfer back to Granada this morning, where you'll have a chance to stroll round the city or visit the stunning Alhambra – ancient Moorish fortress which itself merits a visit to Spain. Accommodation this evening at a perfectly-situated hotel, near restaurants and tapas bars in the historic city centre.
