Algarinejo (Granada, Andalucía)

Algarinejo is a typical Andalusian country village. A small but pretty pueblo situated on the edge of the sierra subbetica, in the western most point of the Province of Granada. Algarinejo currently has around 3,500 residents, two banks, several supermarkets, many bustling bars, and its best surprise is a restaurant named 'Piolas', which was recently voted one of the best two restaurants in Western Granada, by the Spanish newspaper 'Ideal'. Their international menu offers a varied selection and the food is always of superb quality. People travel from as far as Malaga and Granada to eat there.
Algarinejo, like most places in Spain, has many fiestas throughout the year culminating in the biggest and best (4 days long!) at the end of August (just before the local children return to school).
This is 'real' Spain where the people go out of their way to be friendly, the food is excellent, and it is a tradition that you will be given a plate of 'Tapas' with every alcoholic drink consumed. Algarinejo is ideally situated being only 45 minutes from Granada International Airport, and one hour from Malaga Airport. In one hour you can also be in the centre of Granada, and both Cordoba and Seville are around one and a half hours drive away. Rural tourism is high on the agenda for the Junta de Andalusia and all over the region many thousands of euros are being spent improving the infrastructure, including the roads etc to improve access and encourage tourists inland.

Moclín (Granada, Andalucía)

In the north west of the Granada Province about 35 kilometres from Granada City along the N432 towards Córdoba is the lovely hillside village of Moclín. The situation is hard to beat in terms of historical interest and stunning views from its altitude of 1,065 metres above sea level. It is on the route of the Caliphs and has an impressive 14 th century Moorish Castle looking into the valley. There are breathtaking vistas towards the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains as well as down into Granada, home of the famous Alhambra. For a taste of Andalusian village life, this is a good choice as a place to stay when visiting the provinces of Granada and Córdoba. Of great interest in close proximity to the village are many traces of prehistoric man, in the form of cave paintings and Neolithic stone formations.
There are approximately 4,750 people living in the overall municipality of Moclín, with just over 500 residing in the actual village. The other villages belonging to the Moclín municipality are Puerto Lope, Tiena, Tózar, Limones and Los Olivares. The town hall overseeing all of these is in Moclín village, where you will find the majority of the historic monuments, important to the area. These include; The Moclín Castle, fortification walls, the Sanctuary of the Saint Cristo del Paño (from the 16 th century), the Hermitage of San Anton and the Mirador de Moclin.
You will find no grand hotels in this village, but the friendly, family run ‘hostals’ (small hotels or bed and breakfast establishments) are generally very comfortable, clean and affordable. Another option is to be a rural tourist and self cater by renting a village house. You will not meet many English speakers, but the locals are used to welcoming foreign tourists, so there should be no problems. It is a delight to wake up and look out on to the almond blossom and the olive groves of the hillside into which the village nestles. There are lovely walks down into the valleys below or up through the mountain pine forests. For night life, you can either drive into the nearby bustling city of Granada or simply chill out in one of the two local bar/restaurants for a taste of traditional Andalusia.
