NIGÜELAS

A Granada village in the Lecrin Valley region, Nigüelas is also known as “the Valley’s balcony”. The village, at 931m of altitude, is situated on the right bank of the Torrente River at the foot of El Zahor mountain. It is 3 kms from Dúrcal, 28 kms from Granada and 15 kms from La Alpujarra. It is located halfway between the capital city and the coast of Granada. From this village and its surroundings, one can enjoy a great variety of beautiful landscapes such as the village’s central area with the Sierra Nevada as its backdrop, as viewed from the old country road. La Razuela, a small terrace at the foot of El Zahor overlooking the village, provides a magnificent viewpoint of the entire region. Los Cahorros, a Torrente River gorge, lies 1 km from the centre of the village. The streets and patios remind us of the village’s Moorish origins. The Sierra Nevada mountains are accessible via trails that start in the village.
This area has much to offer travellers and visitors: excellent hiking trails, local artisan shops, tapas bars. Locals are friendly and open. There are many places of interest such as Arabic baths, castle ruins, old oil mills and interesting churches.
The primary source of income for its 1,200 inhabitants is agriculture: olive trees, almond trees, citrus fruit trees, cereals, legumes, vineyards and potatoes. Nigüelas also has a strong theatrical and musical tradition.
