This is one of the Top Walks in La Alpujarra. In the first part of our trip, we will pass through Lanjarón and Órgiva, located on the foothill of the Sierra Nevada. We will enter in the  trough the Poqueira Valley, where we would be able to stop in our coming back trip. Our destination is another, a less crowded route in the heart of the Alpujarra (Sierra Nevada Natural Park).

Taha de Pitres is the name of a municipality which is made up of seven small settlements. Small medieval footpaths will take us through some of these small villages, which are the best examples of the traditional architecture of the Alpujarra, such as Mecina, Ferreirola, Busquistar and Atalbéitar.

While walking, we will talk about the history of the Alpujarra, the characteristics of its urban planning and architecture, natural resources and traditions.
