the Alpujarra is a series of beautiful white-washed Andalucian-moorish villages high up in the mountains, producing loads of crafts like ceramics, rugs and strange little herbal tinctures and liquers.

White washed houses trail the mountainous paths where the winding roads travel high on cliff edges. The vegetation here is so green.apparently anything grows on this land, after all, it’s known for it’s Spring climate all year round ( Gotta taste the warm rain and smell the moist ground.delight! )
