From a privileged balcony, which until recently looked out upon a garden of vines, we get the white farmhouse Canjayar, sinuous, elongated, steep slopes, where gardens, squares and viewpoints contributions to the simple sensations built space.

It is the essence of La Alpujarra, with terracing hillsides worked hard since last hispanomusulmán, but today, in many cases, gaps in the absence of profitable crops.

But let's be optimistic and to do the Santa Cruz del Voto, perfect testimony of profound popular religiosity from the modern age has come to today, and he brings passion and excitement for the festivities. In 2011 the fourth centenary of the apparition with a solemn Jubilee Year was celebrated.

Do not forget to enjoy the urban corners, because an open museum with ceramic panels brings us to the past, also visible in fountains, gazebos and bourgeois homes, memories of a recent splendor. Come and enjoy, are invited.
