Scenic Drives

Las Alpujarras is a spectacular area to drive around.  There are dramatic views across the mountains and hills, roads down to valleys bases, narrow passes through gorges, and bridges spanning pretty rivers.  The villages in Las Alpujarras are picturesque, traditional, white-washed places, often quite a distance apart and fairly isolated, so driving is a good way to see a few of them at a time. 

There are some good country roads in this region, which offer pleasurable, rewarding and exciting driving, and many places to stop to take photos.  Many roads are quiet and you can go quite a time before meeting anyone else.  Some roads are rather more narrow and old however, often only wide enough for one vehicle, and can be pot-holed with severe drops down unprotected sides, so caution is always to be used.  You can often come suddenly across herds of goats, as well as seeing wildlife more used to isolation, so it is a good idea to drive slowly and carefully, being cautious about what you'll meet around the next bend. 

Obviously ensure your car works well and is safe, bearing in mind the often steep descents and stiff climbs, and it is recommended that you use a good quality map with the road numbers marked, and plenty of water to drink as on hot days the car can get very warm.  Many of the streets in villages are often too narrow for a car.

Below are a selection of our favourite scenic drives.
