A typical street in Pampaneira (Granada), adorned with the traditional banners of La Alpujarra

In Pampaneira, the cultural heritage left by Moorish people in the region of Alpujarra, Granada, is preserved intact, with its narrow streets and alleys, its inviting squares, and its traditional houses.

Squeezed between the steep sides of Sierra Nevada, and the Mediterranenan coast, the beauty and the charm of Pampaneira made this town the winner of different awards, such as the First Provincial Embellishment Award (1976), and, for two consecutive years 1977 y 1978, the National Tourism Award for the Embellishment and Improvement of Spanish Towns. In this township we find the Buddhist monastery of O Sel Ling, a place devoted to seclusion and meditation.

The small village – with a population of around 300 – centres on its pretty square dominated by a 16th-century Mudéjar church, the Iglesia de Santa Cruz, with a wooden coffered ceiling and a couple of gilded altarpieces dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. The church is flanked by several bars and handicraft shops.

Pampaneira, Granada: A Guide to the Alpujarra’s Pretty Town

With pretty whitewashed streets and outstanding mountain views, Pampaneira, Granada, is a town worth adding to your Alpujarra itinerary.

It’s recognised as one of the most beautiful towns in Spain, and you won’t be disappointed. 

During my trip to the Alpujarra region, I visited Soportujar and Pampaneira, and I can say these are two unmissable towns in Granada. 

If you’re ready to explore Pampaneira, I’ve got you covered! This travel guide covers brief information about the town, things to do, main events and more!

About Pampaneira, Granada

Pampaneira is a quaint small town located in the Alpujarras region, Granada . Due to its location, it belongs to Sierra Nevada National Park, alongside its neighbour towns, Bubion and Capileira.

Its whitewashed buildings, cobblestone streets and views make it very picturesque, no matter where you look.

Because of its beauty and charm, it’s also considered one of the most beautiful towns in Spain and is included in the official list of “ pueblos más bonitos de España ”.

If you wonder what Pampaneira is famous for, it’s known for its historically whitewashed houses, its narrow arched streets (called tinaos) and traditional crafts, such as colourful carpets.

It’s definitely a town to add to your Spanish bucket list !

Things to do in Pampaneira

Pampaneira is a small town with some fantastic things to do in a day. Here are my favourite things to do in Pampaneira:

1. Wander its beautiful streets and alleys

Cristina walking on a cobblestone street in Pampaneira, Spain.

The best way to explore Pampaneira is on foot. The town is home to a labyrinth of small and narrow streets with unique architecture that was created by the Berbers.

Be ready to see houses with flat rooftops with chimneys and hilly cobblestone streets with small canals where water runs through, and walk through the traditional “tinaos”. The latter are small tunnels in between the houses, which were used as a water system.

The whitewashed houses with wooden doors and often decorated with plants are very photogenic. I couldn’t resist taking photos of every corner and realised why it’s among the prettiest towns in Spain.

2. See the public laundry house

Old laundry house in Pampaneira, Granada.

Lavadero Antiguo de Pampaneira, also known as Lavadero del Cerrillo, is an architectural gem. This old laundry house was restored in 2019 but dates back to the 19th century.

The public laundry house is located at the top of the town, so you can also stop to admire the beautiful views of the town and surroundings.

3. Enjoy the atmosphere at Plaza de la Libertad

Main square in Pampaneira, Spain.

Plaza de la Libertad (Libertad Square) is the liveliest area in the town. Here, you can sit down at a restaurant and people-watch on a sunny afternoon and buy souvenirs, such as ceramic pots, jams, honey, and colourful carpets. 

4. Visit Iglesia de la Santa Cruz

A view of Pampaneira's church.

Iglesia de la Cruz is Pampaneira’s main church, located in Plaza de la Libertad. There’s no way to miss it, as the building stands out from the rest because of its ochre colour and Barocco architecture.

The church dates back to 1501, and here you can see some emblematic religious statues like Nuestra Señora de los Remedios.

5. Eat chocolate at Abuela Ili chocolate factory

Abuela Ili, chocolate factory in Pampaneira, Granada.

If you love chocolate, you’re in for a treat! This chocolate factory and shop is in the middle of the town, so there’s no reason to miss it.

As you go through the door, you walk down to the shop and factory on the underground floor. As you walk, you can see interesting panels that tell you about chocolate. Once downstairs, you find a counter full of different types of chocolate.

Whether you love milk, dark, or white chocolate, there’s one for you. Plus, there are many flavours (chilli, banana, caramel and more!) Abuela Ili chocolates won’t disappoint you.

I loved that as I was looking around and deciding which one to buy, the owners gave us a little bag with chocolate samples. Isn’t that great?

I can guarantee you’ll end up buying a few chocolates from Abuela Ili !

Visiting Abuela Ili’s chocolate factory was one of my favourite things to do in Pampaneira.

6. Visit the nearby town of Soportujar

Dragon fountain in Soportujar, Granada.

A day trip to Pampaneira also gives you the opportunity to explore other nearby towns, and that’s what I exactly did.

There are many unique towns in the Alpujarra region, and it can be challenging to choose one or two. However, if you’re after a quirky village, add Soportujar to your list. Plus, it’s only a 15-minute drive from Pampaneira.

Soportujar is known as the haunted village because it has a witch and superstition theme. When you visit this town, you can see plenty of statues of witches and other creatures, learn about its legends, and go on a hiking trail.

7. Go to Sierra Nevada

Panoramic view of Sierra Nevada with green forest.

If you’re staying a few days in the Alpujarra region, why not visit Sierra Nevada?

Sierra Nevada is usually associated with skiing, but that’s not the only thing you can do there. It’s also great for hiking. It’s easy to spend a day there, but if you love skiing, it’s worth spending more time there. 

One of my favourite accommodations there is El Lodge . It has cosy alpine-style rooms and a fantastic heated outdoor pool with mountain views.

Traditional events in Pampaneira and its surroundings

La Feria de Artesanía, Turismo y Agricultura Ecológica de Pampaneira

This crafts, tourism and food festival in Pampaneira is often celebrated towards the end of October until the beginning of November. It lasts approximately 3 days.

Pampaneira becomes the epicentre of culture during this festival, showcasing the best artisanal products. You can find many stalls selling anything from cute baskets made out of wicker and colourful clothing and carpets to jewellery and puppets.

Also, if you love food, you need to attend this festival. Try delicious traditional pastries, cheese, Iberian ham, jams, honey, chocolate and sweets, among other foods.

It’s a great festival to attend because of its local products, setting and atmosphere.

Fiestas patronales de Pampaneira

Pampaneira has many celebrations that pay tribute to the town’s patrons throughout the year. These are the most popular:

  • Fiestas Patronales San Blas (around the 4th of February)
  • Fiestas de la Santa Cruz (3rd of May and second week of August)

During these events, you can expect live music, traditional dances, delicious local foods, and religious processions.

Fiesta de la Mauraca

Fiesta de la Mauraca is a celebration that takes place in the neighbouring town of Capileira.

Every year, on the 1st of November, when All Saints’ Day is celebrated, locals and people from other towns and cities visit Capileira, eat roasted chestnuts, and drink anisette at night.

If you happen to be there, make sure to wear a good coat and maybe a scarf, because it’s cold in the Alpujarra region during that time of the year.

What to eat in Pampaneira

Lomo de orza, a typical dish of Granada

🥘 My recommendation : Restaurante Ruta del Mulhacén

There are quite a few options to have a meal in Pampaneira, especially near the main square. However, my top recommendation is Restaurante Ruta del Mulhacén, located less than a minute’s walk from the chocolate factory.

First, I suggest booking a table in advance because it gets busy on weekends, and sometimes during weekdays, especially if it’s a bank holiday.

They have two floors, but if you’re after a meal with views, ask for a table on the outdoor terrace, which has beautiful views of the church and surroundings. 

The menu includes traditional dishes from the Granada and the Alpujarra regions, so you can taste typical authentic food.

Portions are generous, so you don’t need to order many dishes like sometimes happens with other restaurants. 

I ordered lomo de orza, a pork dish that also came accompanied by pisto (Spanish-style ratatouille), Poor Man’s Potatoes and a fried egg. It was hearty but delicious.  

Other dishes you might also want to try are:

  • Plato alpujarreño which has pork, sausages, black pudding, potatoes, peppers and fried egg.
  • Remojón granadino, a potato salad made with orange, cod, onions and black olives. 

Where to stay in Pampaneira

A beautiful door with wisteria in Pampaneira, Granada, Southern Spain.

When it comes to accommodation in Pampaneira, there aren’t many options to choose from. 

It’s often a place to visit for a couple of hours or half a day; however, staying in the Alpujarras region is a good idea to explore all the little towns or if you plan to hike or disconnect from the bustle of the city.

Some recommended lodging options are:

Estrella de las Nieves

Stars: 3 | Review: 9.2 out of 10 | Book with Booking.com

This 3-star countryside hotel offers cosy rooms with comfortable beds, ensuite bathrooms, flat-screen TV, air conditioning and free WiFi. Some also include a lovely balcony with mountain views.

The highlights of this hotel are its stunning views of the Poqueira Gorge and breakfast.

🛏️ Check out the price and availability here

Dreams Alpujarra

Review: 9.7 out of 10 | Book with booking.com

If you prefer an apartment over a hotel room, Dreams Alpujarra is a better option for you.

The apartments have a rustic countryside style and have everything you need – from a fully-equipped kitchen and flat-screen TV to air conditioning, WiFi and a private car park.

In addition to this, you can also enjoy the swimming pool in the summer and the BBQ facilities.

The road up to La Gorgoracha is ok, but the rest of the journey is tricky because of the narrow and windy roads. You need some experience driving to go through these roads. I mean, I wouldn’t drive there (my uncle took me there).

Pampaneira in the Alpujarras

Visit Pampaneira in the Alpujaras area of Granada, to experience, for a day, traditional rural life in an isolated village.

The square in Pampaneiro

Experience Traditional Rural Life

With a population of 300 or so the tiny white village of Pampaneira, perched at 1060 metres altitude in the Alpujarras, does not exactly hum at night. But night life is not what visitors to this place want. Many are walkers, others are there to experience, for a day, traditional rural life in an isolated village.

Pampaneira during Roman times

Textiles - a cottage industry

Textiles - a cottage industry

Although Pampaneira dates back as far as Roman times, the name itself derives from pampinarius meaning producer of small bunches of grapes, the street plan is clearly Berber. It was the Moors that introduced the now forgotten, in the Alpujarras, industry of silk making and the Christians from as far afield as Leon and Galicia who were shipped in to repopulate the area after the conquest that brought with them the gaudy coloured rug manufacturing cottage industry you see today.

Summer in Pampaneira

Drying peppers, tomatoes and garlic for the winter

Drying peppers, tomatoes and garlic for the winter

The narrow, pretty, whitewashed streets with vibrant planters and baskets are centred around the main and only square with its scattering of cafes and bars. Colourful umbrellas shade the morning coffee crowd from the searing summer sun blazing down from an azure blue, cloudless sky.

Autumn in Pampaneira

Storm gullies in Pampaneira

Storm gullies in Pampaneira

In autumn the flat roofs of many houses are strung with peppers and tomatoes drying in the mountain air whilst below the souvenir shops sell locally made textiles, leather goods and ceramics. Honey, cheese and ham are produced nearby. It all looks and sounds idyllic, one might even dream of living here.

Built for Extremes

However there are signs that all is not quite so ideal all year. Notice the, not so much storm drains as storm gullies, that wind down the steeper streets. They are designed to carry a lot of water. In extremis the streets themselves act as tributaries carrying water from the slopes above into the river in the Barranco de Poqueira gorge below. The long, round, capped chimneys, almost a trademark of the Alpujarras region, guarantee a good draw in high winds. The altitude promises snow in winter. Notwithstanding the drawbacks it is all very charming.

Historic Settings of Andalucia

So charming is Pampaneira that, in 2006, a Junta funded institution with the improbable name of the Association of Historical Settings and Popular Architecture of Andalucia introduced a programme that involves twenty three villages of Andalucia; Alajar, Almonaster la Real, Aroche, Linares de la Sierra, Zufre, Cazalla de la Sierra, Constantina, Guadalcanal, Bujalance, Dos Torres, Montoro, Pedroche, Bubion, Capileira, Castril, Pampaneira, Arquillos, Banos de la Encina, Guarroman, Montizon, Vilches, Velez Blanco and Velez Rubio. The programme is part of the Sustainable Tourism Programme, ‘Conjuntos Historicos de Andalucia’, (Historic Settings of Andalucia) and its aim is to create a competitive tourist destination.

It is thought that the name "Pampaneira" comes from either the Latin word "pampinus" , meaning "branch" (referring to its fertile land) or "Pampinarius" , meaning "producer of pámpanos" which translates to "land of vines" . In either case, Pampaneira was clearly named for the lushness and abundance of its surrounding countryside.

The "-eira" ending, which you also see in the name "Capileira", was later added by the Arabs.

Las Alpujarras: Walking from Pampaneira to Búbion

Pampaneira Street Walk Las Alpujarras

Haven’t heard of the Alpujarras? Neither had I! The Alpujarras are located in the Andalucian region of Spain (that’s the south) on the south side of the Sierra Nevadas. This part of Spain used to be inhabited by the Moors until the Catholic “Reconquest” lead to the Moors either being pushed out or having to convert to Christianity.

The villages of the Alpujarras are some of the last places where the Moors lived, and their isolation means they remained closer to their historical state than many other areas. For us now, this means pretty traditional white villages dotting the mountainsides and valleys of the southern Sierra Nevadas, right up to one of the highest villages in Spain, Trevélez.

Where to go in the Alpujarras?

The Alpujarras are a beautiful place to go walking and enjoy traditional Spanish food. Each village is unique, but it’s easy to get from one to the other in a short trip, with by walking the Alpujarras, taking public transport or driving. There are so many small towns in the Alpujarras it’s difficult to know where to begin.

We travelled from the coast and spent our first night we stayed in the gateway town of Órgiva. It’s not as pretty as the other towns and more of the service centre for the rest of the area, but it had decent and affordable accommodation. Hotel Mirasol was clean, spacious and had a huge balcony, all for €47 for a twin room.

Where to stay in Orgiva Las Alpujarras

Three of the most well-known towns in the Alpujarras are Pampaneira, Búbion, and Capileira. They are all in the same valley and you can walk between the three.

The bus from Órgiva goes all the way to Trevélez, the highest village in the Alpujarras. If you time it carefully you could see a lot in one day, but because we weren’t sure of times we decided to stick to the 3 closer villages.

What to do in the Alpujarras?

Traditional handcrafts.

The Alpujarras is a great place to see or buy local crafts. Everything from mats for olive pressing, cheese and butter making, to leathers, ceramics and colourful rugs can be found here. In some shops, you can see the artists making their wares, like the one I stumbled across in Búbion. The loom was next to a window overlooking the beautiful valley, what a place to work!

La Plaza Pampaneira Las Alpujarras

Alpujarras walking tracks are found between many of the villages, but some are definitely easier than others! Serious walkers could spend a lot of time here making their way from village to village. For not so serious walkers, Pampaneira, Búbion, and Capileira are a great option. You could go all the way to Capileira and walk down the valley to Búbion and Pampaneira. Although we found out the villages look much better when you look up at them rather than down, so if you can I suggest walking up instead!

The jamón (ham) in Las Alpujarras has a reputation for being some of the best, and particularly if it’s from Trevélez.

Migas is another traditional Andalusian food which I had tried once before, but the Las Alpujarras style made in Pampaneira was amazing! Migas is similar to couscous, but made of durham wheat, or sometimes bread. It usually comes with some kind of meat or offal, and this one had blood sausage and chorizo. Chorizo I love, and although I wasn’t so keen on the blood sausage it tasted really good. Add some sort of green leafy vegetable and oranges and you have amazingness on a plate.

How to walk from Pampaneira to Búbion

If you want to walk from Pampaneira to Búbion in Las Alpujarras, then walk as far to the top of the village as you can, higher than the old washhouse, and then head to the left. There’s a sign indicating your own the right path. It’s an easy walk, although it is uphill of course so you need a little fitness. This is what the right path looks like.

Las Alpujarras walking Pampaneira to Bubion

During the walk from Pampaneira to Búbion, you can see up and down the valley and pass through farmland. The path is easy to walk on and fairly wide and open, although it gets narrow in a couple of little places. Walking from Pampaneira to Búbion only takes about 30-45 minutes, depending on how often you stop for photos and how fit you are! We walked in February and it was already warm walking uphill, so I can imagine in summer it gets really hot. Luckily there is a freshwater fountain right when you get to Búbion so you can fill up with water there!

Walking Pampaneira to Bubion

How not to walk from Pampaneira to Búbion…

So above is the right way to go, but it’s not exactly how we did it the first time. Instead of being smart and asking for directions we just decided to wander around ourselves. We knew we had to head nearer the top of the village to start the walk, but we came across a path close to the top and decided it looked fun so we ventured down it. Plus there was a cat. And cats are cute. We figured the path was headed in the right direction and we would be able to cut further up to Búbion if need be.

The path was a beautiful little track, small and narrow, the opposite to the right path we walked on later in the day. We reached a point where we could see Búbion above us but had no way to get up to it because of steep ridges, so we decided we would just carry on (alarm bells? naaah). Instead of heading upwards the track went down to the river running through the middle of the valley. The scenery was beautiful, and we weren’t complaining.

Walk Pampaneira to Bubion Las Aplujarras

Enter our Spanish guide, a random person we came across. He directed us to continue on the way we thought to reach Capiliera instead, so we did and as we walked we passed two groups of walkers coming the other way so we knew we must be headed in the right direction. Then all of a sudden the track ended at a waterfall. We didn’t know if we were meant to go through it, or if we had missed a turn. We tried through the waterfall and went back to look for a missed turn. Nothing. We tried climbing a steep cliff, but it didn’t really work that well. Maybe now would be the time to mention I was wearing converse sneakers, not actual walking shoes. Hmm. After much indecision, back and forth walking along the same piece of track, googling and wondering if we should cross the river, we decided to head back to where we started. All of us refused to admit defeat

After much indecision, back and forth walking along the same piece of track, Googling walking in the Alpujarras and wondering if we should cross the river, we decided to head back to where we started. All of us refused to admit defeat though, because going “off the beaten path” ended up being much more fun and beautiful than the proper track to Búbion.

Walk Pampaneira to Bubion Las Alpujarras

There isn’t really a lesson here in walking the wrong way from Pampaneira to Búbion. In this case exploring this track along the river was really great, as it was so much better than the actual track from Pampaneira to Búbion. If you have the time, walk to the lower part of the village and along the river for around half an hour a d then back. Still a great walk!

Have you ever been lost but it turned into a great adventure and it didn’t matter? Or have you ever been to Las Alpujarras?

Getting lost is amazing! Wonderful photos and story.

Thanks Charles! I frequently get lost and it’s not always the best idea, but in this situation it was great! I love when you have the time to explore and it doesn’t matter if you get lost, just not when I need to actually find something!

What a charming place to be! I love the rugs and the cobblestoned streets and alleys. Enjoyed the post!

Thanks Moon! It is such a lovely area I hope I’ll be able to spend more time there!

Las Alpujarras is beautiful. It’s also worth leaving the more touristy places and going further east to The villages of Valor, Mairena and Laroles. Where there is very little tourism. This is the relatively undiscovered Alpujarras. The walking is fantastic, as is the open air theatre in Laroles where you can watch critically acclaimed acts perform against a stunning mountain back drop under the summer stars. A truly magical experience. The theate has been built and run by expat Anna Kemp.

Thanks Joy! I’d love to head to some other parts of the Alpujarras so I’ll keep these in mind! Unfortunately we only had one day so headed for the closer villages, but I imagine the further ones are amazing and much less touristy. I live in Almería and I’m hoping to check out the villages in the Aplujarras here because I’m sure they will be completely different again.

Great post! I suggest that you visit the Almería´s side of las Alpujarras, you will enjoy it! Starting in Berja (where you can find a Tourist Office), Alcolea, Laujar and el Puerto de la Ragua (2.000 m), and along the Andarax River Valley (Fondón, Padules, Almócita, Beires, Ohanes, Terque and its museum). Los Millares is one of the most important arqueological places in Spain, in the entrance gate of las Alpujarras coming from Almería. You will spend at least two or three days to discover all these beatiful places.

Thanks so much David! I made a very quick trip to the Almeria side of the Aplujarras, to some of the place you mentioned although not Berja. I LOVED Ohanes! I definitely need to spend more time there, and since I’ll be around for at least the next year living in Almeria I plan to!

Thanks so much for posting! We are going here in two weeks and am even more excited about this area!! Thanks for the food tips. Sometimes we miss the local specialities.

You’re welcome!!! Hope you have a great time! It’ll be a bit snowier than this I bet!

Storms Snarl Memorial Day Travel After at Least 23 Killed

Severe weather stretching across the Midwest and East Coast on Monday disrupted plans for millions of Americans trying to make it home after a busy weekend that was expected to break records for Memorial Day travel. The disruptions followed storms and tornadoes that killed at least 23 people in the South and left hundreds of thousands without power.

Flights at airports from Atlanta to Boston experienced ground delays and stops as severe weather, including heavy rain and potentially damaging wind and hail, moved into much of the Eastern United States on Monday afternoon and evening.

Parts of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania were under severe storm watches through late Monday, and a tornado watch was issued for an area from northern Maryland through eastern North Carolina, including Washington, D.C. Heat and more thunderstorms were forecast for Texas and the Southern Plains on Tuesday, including possible hail and strong winds.

Officials with the Federal Aviation Administration said that they had worked with the airlines to plan for the expected weather disruptions over the Memorial Day weekend. On Friday, 2.9 million people were screened at U.S. airports , the Transportation Security Administration said — a single-day record.

By midday on Monday, La Guardia Airport in New York City had reported average ground delays of 100 minutes. Flights were also delayed at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the busiest in the world. And ground stops and major delays were reported or expected at airports in Chicago, Virginia, Baltimore, Washington, Philadelphia and Cleveland because of the storms, according to the F.A.A.

In Kentucky, Gov. Andy Beshear declared a state of emergency on Monday morning after four people were killed over the weekend. On Monday afternoon, Gov. Beshear announced a fifth storm-related death in the state, a person who died from a heart attack while cutting fallen trees. More than 150,000 customers in the state were without power at midday after damaging winds.

Elsewhere, a tornado left at least seven people dead in North Texas, including two children ages 2 and 5. Eight people were killed in Arkansas, and two died in Oklahoma as severe storms swept through the region, flattening hundreds of buildings and blowing away homes. And severe thunderstorms in Virginia resulted in at least one fatality, officials said.

Share of customers without power

Thousands of others in the South and the Midwest were without power on Monday, according to the tracking site poweroutage.us .

Later on Monday, severe thunderstorms were expected from Texas to New York, the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center said . Flash flooding was possible from Maryland to the Catskill Mountains in New York, the Weather Service said , and tornadoes were possible in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Forecast risk of severe storms for Monday

The system was the latest to pummel the region over the past few days. Five people were killed and part of a city was obliterated in Iowa last week after a powerful tornado hit.

President Biden issued a statement of condolence to those affected by the storms, and he thanked emergency responders for their work.

“Jill and I are praying for those who tragically lost their lives as a result of devastating tornadoes that tore through Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma, leveling entire communities and leaving a path of destruction in their wake,” Mr. Biden said.

Mr. Biden said that the federal government was “ready to provide support as needed.” He noted that the Memorial Day holiday storms came just weeks after counties in the Midwest and South were recovering from severe weather.

On Sunday, severe thunderstorms in Howell County, Mo., produced hail the size of baseballs and tornadoes that downed trees and damaged homes near the town of Mountain View, said Kelsey Angle, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Springfield.

An overhead view of debris scattered across a parking lot, with a brown pickup in the lower right-hand corner.

In Kentucky, Governor Beshear deployed the National Guard to help state forestry workers clear downed trees and dangerous debris. He activated the state’s price-gouging statute to prevent price increases on necessary supplies, and said he believed that the state would qualify for public assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Emergency workers have reported high water, fallen trees and other dangerous conditions in about a third of Kentucky’s 120 counties, mostly in the western part of the state, Jim Gray, the Kentucky transportation secretary, said at a news conference. The storms also impacted nearly 100 state highways.

In Texas, Governor Greg Abbott s igned a severe weather disaster declaration that covered 106 counties. Officials estimate that nearly 100 people were injured over the weekend, more than 200 homes were destroyed and over 220 buildings were damaged.

Johnny Diaz and Mike Ives contributed reporting.
