Halfway between Capileira and Pampaneira in the Poqueira gorge is the sleepy village of Bubión, which like its neighbours is surrounded by magnificent views of the often snow-capped Sierra Nevada peaks and the Alpujarras. Bubión is also a good base for walking and is on the GR7 long-distance footpath. A great place to just wander around the narrow streets and admire the local crafts and flower laden balconies.
Apart from a few craft shops, there is a small folk museum, the Casa Alpujarreña. The village of Bubion offers accommodation details and horse riding and hiking trips.
