This information point is in the Plaza de la Libertad in Pampaneira, a village which together with Capileira and Bubión constitutes one of the most beautiful parts of the Western (Granada) Alpujarras.
The exhibition explains how the surrounding area was described by naturalists, scientists and famous romantic writers, how it became famous for possessing the highest peaks in the Iberian Peninsula and how its flora and fauna are considered one of the richest examples of biodiversity in Europe. Visitors will also learn about the traditional customs and activities of the local people -exemplified by livestock breeding, medicinal plants and the terrace farming adopted to overcome problems posed by very steep hillsides.
The arts and customs of these mountain villages, famous among other things for their characteristic architecture, are illustrated by looms, ploughing instruments and other utensils. The villages of the Alpujarras are made up of white houses clinging to the mountainsides, narrow streets, flat roofs, narrow chimneys and the characteristic porches, known as tinaos, which span the streets from one side to another.
