When you go to Pampaneira in the Alpujarras, make sure you stop in at one of the functioning artisan studios. We stopped in at a weaving house, where the owner and master weaver was working on some beautiful blankets and wall hangings. Her name is Mercedes Carrascosa, and she has had a shop there for over 20 years. Her shop is loaded with her work, and believe me when I say you will have a very difficult time choosing which item to buy, they are all so beautiful. Prices were excellent too, starting at about 50 euros and going on up to 100 for a really large blanket. The wall hangings were reasonable too, the most expensive one that I saw was 300 euros and it was quite a large and intricate piece of work.

We saw this cave on the side of the road yesterday on the road to La Alpujarra. We went inside to look around, and clearly it is still in use on occasion for shelter, a great teen party place for sure!
If you are looking for something fun and interesting to do while you are here in the area, definitely check out La Alpujarra mountain range with all its beautiful picturesque little villages, you can go for the day, or even overnight as there are tons of inexpensive types of accommodation. A lovely place to walk around, and there is a chocolate factory… What more do you need.
It was such a lovely day today that I took myself over to La Charca de Suarez in Motril this morning. The drive through the back roads was relaxing and full of nice surprises and some good photo ops. For those interested in visiting La Charca, the visiting hours have changed. The schedule is now as follows.
Monday through Friday 18:30 pm – At 18:30 a Spanish speaking guide will take visitors through the park. You can opt out of the group and go counter clockwise through it, but you must be sure to be at the gate at the closing hour. It’s best to check with the guide to ensure you get the right information. This is what I did.
Saturdays and Sundays, there will be 3 guided visits- 10:00, 11:30, and 18:30.
Here are a few of the things I was fortunate enough to find on my walk today.
