Itinerary

Lanjarón 

Several researchers point the name of Lanjarón to different origins, but all the versions have something in common: water. And that one is added to a report by the World Health Organization which highlighted Lanjarón as one of the municipalities on the planet with the highest life expectancy, So, here you are: Elixir of life.

In fact, there have been great names who wanted to test the waters of the city with the intention of improving health problems or trying to give themselves a few more years of life.

García Lorca family enjoyed a few summers between 1923 and 1935 or, for example, Virginia Woolf, Bertrand Russell or the musician Manuel de Falla are some of the artisits also. And, if Harry Potter had known, surely he would have visited Lanjarón and would have avoided the occasional confrontation to protect the secret of immortality. There are 23 pillars or fountains throughout the city. Will you leave without trying it?

We are going to visit the Plaza de la Constitución, cannons, niches, Hermita del Tajo de la Cruz and we are going to walk through the Parque del Salao. A good time to take a deep breath because... It's full of Eucalyptus trees!

Pampaneira

Did you know what is considered one of the most beautiful towns in Andalucia? But before inquiring into the beautiful streets, let's talk about fountains again. This time about the love powers of the San Antonio fountain!

As can be read on their mural, the fountain is better known as Chumpaneira: "It is of such magnitude that a single man who drinks with the intention of getting married does not fail, because he instantly has a couple, you see!" Hydration, more years of life and a marriage. This excursion is priceless!

Pampaneira is located between mountains, their white houses on slopes, cobbled streets and balconies full of color plants, give it a magical charm. 

We are going to visit the Plaza de la Libertad, Iglesia de Santa Cruz, we are going to get lost among the streets while learning about the history of the place and we are going to stop in the most charming corners to take some pictures. We cannot leave without stopping in the  artisan workshop with their carpets and “jarapas” shops. Shall we continue?

Trevélez 

Trevélez is known for his tasty, succulent, healthy and exquisite ham. A kings and queens delicious meal! Did you know Queen Elizabeth II, in 1862, granted them the privilege of wearing the royal seal because she liked it so much?

And you will not be left without a good tasting. If Queen Elizabeth II liked it, we believe that it will be up to your taste... hopefully! Of course, don't fill your stomach because then we have a traditional menu for you. And don´t forget our visit to a “secadero”. We will see how the traditional curing process is. 

It's interesting you know "In Trevélez, you will touch the sky", it's what you can read in the viewpoint that you find at the entrance of this small town. ¿Reason? ¡You will be 1,476 meters above sea level!

And by the way, did you know that…? From the top, you can see Africa, and it is the point in Spain where more shooting stars pass by per minute.¡Amazing! Reserve now!
