Quoting leeloo

i think that you will have a great trip enjoy when you will be swimming with orange in your mouth!

Thank you, dear!I ve decided that i will swim, just a little bit, i must!
Of course, my common sense will pull me out of water if I see storm coming or snow from nowwhere..

I thought so..but i will try anyway..
This villages, in Alpujarra, they really attract me, thank you.
We have met a boy who had been living in Granada for 3 years- he is astonished, the Romes and their cultures, bodegas, caves and squots,mountains and fiestas..

If you make it to Rhonda take the back road (I should not advice this but it is really easy to hitch) and head out on the Arco/Villamartin road and stop at Ubrique, a beautiful town with a great church set in a small valley, bougenvilla (the purple flowers) everywhere a tiny square with a few cafe's there. Very cheap, very local and beautiful!

Heading out of Cordoba, you should stop in Antequilla, has a great cathederal on the top of a hill, stunning views from there accross mountains..

Swin in Peuto Santa Maria as someone already suggested...

I love that area of Spain but shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh dont tell too many people, its a great secret!

(if you do not do the hitching route, you can get a bus from Rhonda)

You may venture to the next town along Prado Del Rey, pop into the Library (its a great bar) and find Miguel, tell him Oiy Oiy Oiy, from David in Dubai!

Quoting Gusiluz

For 100 Euros return you better fly Barcelona-Sevilla with Vueling:

Seville-Granada by train is now very well served by RENFE for 20,oo Euros, recommended.

Recommendations:
Cadiz & Puerto de Santa María
Small villages in Alpujarra (the South Side of Sierra Nevada mountains): Capileira, Pampaneira,...you can get there from Granada Bus Station, quite cheap...but be ready for a thousand curves.

This map may help around Granada:

Thanks Gusiluz..We are planning to go to Cadiar in Alpujarras because there is fiesta of wine from 5. to 10. october. Have you been there? Is it worth ? Thanks for the map...

I've never been there but have seen the 'Wine Fountain' thing on TV. Try to join locals. Some (short)info:

Once in the alpujarra don't forget to visit Capileira & Pampaneira, these are the most famous villages of the area. Look for them in the same site (turgranada). If weather allows it there are hundreds of routes to trek, or by horse or by car... You can climb up to Sierra Nevada and the highest peak in Spain: the Mulhacen (3482 m.)- or go down to the coast to Salobreña, another nice village. The beaches in this part of Spain are not sandy, they have little stones instead (because of the mountains) but Salobreña and Nerja are nice villages.
