Las Alpujarras

Occupying the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada, this region was a refuge for the last of the Nasrids (a Moorish dynasty) after the fall of Granada in 1492, then the scene of a Morisco rebellion severely put down in 1568. After sinking into oblivion, the Alpujarras were rediscovered by romantic travellers in the 19C. Since then, visitors have never tired of exploring its whitewashed villages whose houses resemble those found in Morocco.
