guadix and the east
Found to the west of Granada, this area offers a landscape contrasting the red of the Hoya de Guadix with the green of the river valleys. Its most famous attraction is the Sierra Nevada National Park as well as the various cave-houses: some inhabited by residents and others converted into extremely popular tourist accommodation due to its peculiarity and individuality. Villages such as Guadix, one of the largest in the area; La Calahorra, home to the first renaissance building in the Iberian Peninsula; and Alquife, famous for its iron mines, are waiting to be discovered.
