Tourist information

The charm of Picena, a town that is located in the municipality of Nevada, lies in its terraced houses on the hillside hanging over the Río Laroles. Here at the foot of the Sierra Nevada is the border between the provinces of Granada and Almeria. The vegetation is very lush and green, and it even hides the ruins of an interesting medieval castle.
