Hiking in Las Alpujarras along an ancient path still used by locals, we passed through villages and by villagers tending to their crops terraced on the hillsides. This man, who was out for a walk with his mule and sheepdog, stopped to chat with our trip leader, Marian.
We passed through Poqueira Gorge on our way to the iconic mountain village of Capileira. Every corner of Capileira offered incredible views of the Sierra Nevada mountains that surrounded us.
After a hike, we were rewarded with a fantastic paella lunch. There is no better way to end a hike in Spain than with paella and sangria.
Hiking in the spectacular Sierra de Grazalema National Park, there were vistas all around. Here we are overlooking Grazalema, one of Spain’s most renowned Pueblos Blancos.
