Where In The World? Pampaneira and Bubión

Bubión village, seen on Walk 3

 

The Telegraph Travel 15.12.17) wrote an article entitled ‘15 beautiful villages in Spain you’ve probably never heard of

 

 

 

 

Both villages lie in the Poqueira valley, Alpujarras.

 

We’ve certainly heard of most of them and two in particular took our attention; Pampaneira and Bubión. They are both ‘white villages’ in Spain’s Alpujarras, east of Granada.

 

 

 

 

What a place to walk! Spring is a great time to visit. There’s likely to be snow on the mighty peaks to the north, while Spring flowers burst through on the lower slopes and in the valleys.
