Pampaneira is a beautiful La Alpujarra village, probably the best we have ever been to and Ruta del Mulhacen is the jewel in the crown..... right here goes, spotlessly clean, friendly, great very clean loos, magnificent views, relaxing, (did I say friendly), beautiful murals on the walls of the stairs, a smart new lift for those who would find the stairs a challenge or disabled and great food, if you take the stairs to the first floor you look straight into the kitchen through a huge glass panel so they are proud of how they prepair the food as well as the food itself!
We had a beer each which came with some lovely tapas and both ordered the traditional plato alpujarreño, a hearty campesino dish consisting of jamon serrano, spicy chorizo sausage, morcilla black sausage, pork loin, fried egg and patatas a lo pobre (poor man's potatoes), a fry up of potatoes sautéed in olive oil with onions and green peppers, I have to say I'm not a great lover of pork but this was seasoned to perfection, tender and moist the best I have ever eaten but alas too much for me to finish.
Whilst it was more expensive than down in the square (by 2-3 Euros) the meal was at least 50% better and great value.
Highly recomended quite a trek into the hills but we were at the coast in Salobrenia and made the trip twice in the week we were in Spain (says it all)
