The Alpujarras stretch between Granada and Almería. To follow this route, that joins the capital cities of both provinces, a series of mountain passes are used so as not to cross the massif formed by the Sierra Nevada, Sierra de Gádor and La Contraviesa. This region became the last Moorish stronghold of the Iberian Peninsula because it was so isolated. Proof of this are the numerous fortresses to be found here (watchtowers, castles, forts and towers).
