Lanjaron - gateway to the Alpujarra

Lanjarón, on the southern slopes of Spain's Sierra Nevada, is ideal for anyone in search of clean air, mountain views and authentic culture.   Our house is in the 'Plaza Colorada', in the quaint Barrio Hondillo, the old part of Lanjaron, where cultural and religious processions often pass and many visitors come to the town specifically to see this historic district.   The other things not to be missed are the ruined castle, which some claim was a Moorish castle, but there is much discussion about it, and the Parque del Salado, a lovely shaded park opposite the Balneario:  http://balneariodelanjaron.com/

Lanjaron is particularly popular with walkers, hikers and cyclists as there are many well established walks in the region.

 Others come for the slightly cooler mountain air in summer and the Fiesta de San Juan around June 20th, draws both foreign visitors and the Spanish from nearby towns and villages.  It is half an hour's drive from Granada and half an hour from the sea and beaches of the Costa del Sol.

Lanjaron - gateway to the Alpujarra

Lanjaron - gateway to the Alpujarra



Lanjarón is situated on what was the old Moorish silk route and, as it provided a natural gateway to the Alpujarra region, it was considered to be of some strategic importance during Muslim rule.

Our house is in the 'Plaza Colorada', Barrio Hondillo, the old part of Lanjaron, where cultural and religious processions often pass and visitors always come to see this historic district. In this photograph, taken from a house across the street, you can see our partially covered roof terrace. This is a wonderful spot for reading, sunbathing, having a meal or drinking a glass of wine in the evening as you watch the sun go down. The views across the hills and down to the sea are magnificent. Previous guests have used this roof terrace for meditation and yoga.

Lanjaron is particularly popular with walkers, hikers and cyclists as there are many well established walks in the region. Lanjaron is also a SPA town, producing water which is bottled and sold all over Spain. Many tourists come to visit the spa, which also has its own hotel: http://balneariodelanjaron.com/, but if you live in Lanjaron you can visit any time for mineral baths, a variety of spa treatments, massage, etc.
