Mairena is one of these villages along the scenic GR7 mountain route of the Alpujarras where time ceases to exist. Harvests and firewood are still hauled to the village by mule or donkey and the shepherd with his sheep and goats passes through the village. Whitewashed houses seem organically formed, from Moorish times onwards. Colourful flower pots and bougainvillea’s hang down facades and balconies. Except for a small bar and one shop, there is nothing more than tranquillity, fresh air and plenty of wild nature. A splendid environment for a memorable rural trekking holiday you could experience right here!
Las Alpujarras is a valley stretching from west to east on the southern slope of the Sierra Nevada. White villages are separated by regular distances from three to ten kilometres, at an average height of one thousand meters above sea level. Around the villages there is small scale agriculture. Orchards with almonds, fig- and olive trees and plots for vegetables gives the area an unique mixture of agricultural developed landscape, within unspoiled nature. There is always water, running down
via an ingenious system of water canals dating from Moorish times.
There are superb walking tracks most suitable for trekking including the grande randonnée
E4 / GR7 (more information - click here) and the SULAYR route, that circumference the Sierra Nevada. Several walks start from the village of Mairena, in the council of Nevada. Over the last twelve years eco rural / ecotourism or agriturismo / agroturismo became more popular in the Alpujarras. The diversity of nature in the greater region of the Siera Nevada has no equivalence compared to the whole of Europe!
