Reaching the road we will take it past the rising curve of the ravine that crosses the town to take on the rise Source Chestnut Street.
Barrio Bajo. Source Jiménez laundry
This source is the heart of the old medieval neighborhood bass Bayárcal and this spring, as in other cases of La Alpujarra, the cause of the creation of the settlement. Birth is a consequence of the cluster of four nearby springs, which were sobreexcavados through small galleries and embovedados with dry stone, so to foster veneros uptake and channeling of groundwater flow, according to an ancient technique alpujarreña. On the other hand, we find a curious laundry born sheltered the old Camino Real bridge Bayárcal, now remodeled as a small sitting area in the environment. Finally, entering fully into the Lower Quarter and continuing along the same street Vegetable Source Jimenez and return to starting point. After making this last stop of the urban route we return to module Tourist Information Point from which we start.
Bayarcal River Canyon. I pit pronounced steep slopes.
We are in the provincial summit over 1200 meters high, and that we perceive. The town is literally hanging on the mountainside and surrounded by exceptional natural scenery and wide variety, which include dense pine forests and lush oaks. This scenario determines the urban fabric, which, although very recently transformed, maintains the traditional habitat alpujarreño cubic housing one or two floors, tiered decks and eaves. The winding and steep streets add to the charm. The backgrounds are Hispano, which will give us the wise use of water and reduced to subsistence agriculture today, but left us a heritage of striking rural cottages, were threshing mills, fountains and irrigation pond, plus terraces or small plots irrigation are terraced. We are bound to enjoy two separate viewpoints to recognize these hallmarks, which we must complete with an itinerary on foot through those corners. The experience did not disappoint.

Brown Quarter source
We are in a neighborhood-street which houses the upper central area of \u200b\u200bthe nucleus, perhaps remnant of an ancient high road that would run much of the population to access the Barrio Alto. As in many medieval Islamic alpujarreños cores imprint, the population is organized in different neighborhoods of the old farmhouse, formerly separated by farmland, following the Christian occupation, grow steadily to the current compaction. In the twentieth century the new road layout split the urban core, and growth generated under the same favors the extension of the population as "street people", with a characteristic five current configuration spaces. In this regard, a new structure above the Barrio Alto, the neighborhood of Broad Street (under the highway and north of the canyon), the neighborhood of Fountain Brown (on the square), the neighborhood can be seen under (under the church), and Punta del Pueblo, (at the exit towards Paterna). From this street we can climb to the viewpoint of the Age Vivero and his Mycological Center, exhibit with photographs of edible and poisonous mushrooms of the environment, and from here we descend into the church by a picturesque, winding passage.

Church of San Francisco Javier de Bayárcal
(XVI century). This dedicated to San Francisco Javier seems to respond to the presence of people from Navarra to restock on after the expulsion of the Moors. The Moorish temple rebuilt after burning to the Moorish rebellion in 1568, responds to the simplest model for small populations with single rectangular nave and differentiated, and a deck with lima armor roll (four sides) but unfortunately sank in the fifties of the century, and now sadly replaced by an asbestos cement roof. The walls are of ashlar masonry with reinforced corners and are crowned with a cornice with corbels stonework. But the singular, and unique item in the province consists of the spandrels of the belfry, decorated ceramic lusterware grenadine. It houses an interesting altarpiece sixteenth and beautiful baroque carvings of the Granada School of Alonso Cano, and the pattern of the city, San Francisco Javier, and the Immaculate Conception.
