Orgiva, Las AlpujarrasThis thriving, friendly town is the capital of Las Alpujarras, and is one of the larger and more populated towns in the region.  Orgiva has a population of about 5000.  The town is the first that people reach coming from the N340 along the coast, and is a good starting point for an exploration of Las Alpujarras

There is a weekly market (on Thursdays), and the town also has a Tourist Information Office. 

Orgiva, Las AlpujarrasOrgiva has several cafes, bars, hotels, and hostels, and camping sites. 

Orgiva has an attractive twin-spire church which dates from the 16th Century, called the Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Expectacion.  There is also an old white-washed church at the top of the town, called Ermita de San Sebastian. 

There are two delightful village squares.  The Plaza de Alpujarras has walkways displaying tile pictures of several villages in Las Alpujarras. 

Orgiva is set in a valley surrounded by forests with the Rio Chico running through it, so is a good starting point for walks, and has lovely views of the surrounding Sierra Nevada, Sierra de Lujar, and Sierra Contravesia. 

The Festival of Orgiva is 30th Sept – 3rd Oct.
