Capileira, La Alpujarra en español en français
Capileira (population 570) in the Poqueira Gorge is the most attractive and visitor-friendly of all the old white villages of the high Alpujarra in Granada, Spain.
In his book, The Most Beautiful Villages in Spain, Hugh Palmer ranks Capileira in the top thirty.
Beautifully placed in the southern-facing Sierra Nevada, with good facilities, bar-restaurants & shops, it is the ideal base for an Alpujarras walking holiday.
