Begin by heading towards Lanjarón, making the first stop at the historic Nasrid bridge of Tablate. Learn about the relationship of the Moriscos with the Alpujarra. Visit the Nasrid castle and enjoy the views of the surrounding region.

We loved the excursion, you have time to shop, eat, get to know towns with a lot of history, each one with its own particularity. Bolívar, our guide was spectacular, he told us many stories about the Alpujarra and seeing the evolution of the bridges, from the Roman to the present day was wonderful. Tour 100% recommended!

Carlos was our guide for the second day in a row, and he once again lived up to our expectations. He really knows everything about the region and also knows how to get us to the most beautiful places. Driving on a path (not paved) high through the mountains was very exciting for me. Too bad we could wander through the villages so little. Big compliment to Carlos.

Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. He showed us the complexity of the landscape with visits to the small towns and natural areas. We as also got a good understanding of the history and architecture of the area. Lunch at a local restaurant was really good. There was a good balance between driving and us taking informative short walks. The size if the group was six people, which was ideal. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I can highly recommend this event. Well done!
