How to arrive to Las Alpujarras

Whichever form of transport you use to get to Andalucia, whether by ferry to the port of Motril or by plane to the airports of Granada, Almeria and Malaga, the last part of your journey to the Alpujarras will be done by road, with more and more visitors these days choosing to preserve the natural peace and pollution-free air enjoyed by the locals all year round, by touring the region on bike. The roads may be winding and some of the slopes almost vertiginous, but the effort is also worth it for the views as well as the local cuisine at the end of the day.

You can also use Car Rental companies located in every big city like Granada, Malaga and Almeria.

There is an efficient network of roads for leisurely driving (or cycling), with the following being a brief guide to finding your way to your destination:

  • From Granada city or northern Spain via Jaen, the gate to the Alpujarras is the spa town of Lanjaron, reached via the Suspiro del Moro pass south of Granada and the N-323 National Road.
  • From Malaga via the coastal route travelling on the N-340, you enter the region through the villages of Velez de Benaudalla or Albunol.
  • From Guadix in the East of the province of Granada you enter through Puerto de la Ragua, its highest point of entry, travelling along the A-337.
