"White Village in shadow of white capped mountains" Capileira by Martin_S.

Capileira Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 39 photos

The Las Alpuharras region is dotted with white villages sitting in the shadow of the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains, the highest range in Spain. I can just imagine this village in the winter snows literally "disappearing" into the surrounding white.

The actual distances from village to village may be short, but when you look from one village to another they seem to be a vast distance.
You will find this area just to the east of the main road from Malaga to Antequera, take your time to explore.
