Bubión - Just below the mountains of the Sierra Nevada


Halfway between Capileira and Pampaneira in the Poqueira gorge is the sleepy village of Bubión, which like its neighbours is surrounded by magnificent views of the often snow-capped Sierra Nevada peaks and the Alpujarras. Bubión is also a good base for walking and is on the GR7 long-distance footpath.

Apart from a few craft shops, there is a small folk museum, the Casa Alpujarreña. For information on the village and the Alpujarras, visit Rustic Blue Tel: 958 763 381. As well as stocking maps and walking guides, they offer local accommodation details and horse riding and hiking trips. There are also a couple more companies in the village that run horse-riding treks.
