The Taha Valley is a magnificent region located in the eastern part of the Sierra Nevada, in the Alpujarra region of Spain. It consists of seven picturesque small villages: Pitres, Capilerilla, Ferreirola, Atalbéitar, Mecina, Fondales, and Portugos. These villages are perched on mountainsides and offer breathtaking views of the surrounding landscapes. Each of these villages has its own charm and still preserves the traditional architecture of the Alpujarra, with whitewashed houses, flat roofs, and brick chimneys.

The Taha Valley is surrounded by green hills, crystalline rivers, and terraced fields where olive trees, almond trees, fig trees, and other traditional crops are cultivated. The landscapes are stunning, with waterfalls, deep gorges, and dense forests, creating an environment perfect for hiking, climbing, and other outdoor activities.

The people of the Taha Valley are warm and welcoming, and the region is known for its traditional culture and craftsmanship. Local products such as handwoven rugs, ceramics, woolen clothing, and local food products like serrano ham and cheese can be found there.

In summary, the Taha Valley is a beautiful and preserved destination in the Alpujarra, offering breathtaking landscapes, traditional architecture, and an authentic rural atmosphere. It is an ideal place for nature lovers, hiking enthusiasts, and those seeking to discover the culture and gastronomy of Andalusia.

We remember you that CapiFox does not provide guided services but we provide a map of the route through a hiking app (which should be downloaded on your mobile phone before departure) to ensure that visitors stay on the trail and don't miss any of the breathtaking views along the way. This offers an immersive experience and an educational opportunity to learn about the culture, history, and geography of the region.
