We went originally in search of Gerald Brennan's house in Yegen so based ourselves nearby in Válor . By a few days we missed the village festival, recreation of the battle between the Spanish and Moors so already planning next year's visit.
There is so much to see and do but this region is best explored as a series long rambles or , by car with very frequent stops. Towns such as Trevelez - worth it for some amazing local handicrafts - the rugs are tremendous value and also excellent ham. Lanjaron as a health spa with a very pretty centre worth wandering through. We failed to get to so many others as we enjoyed our stay in Válor and from there rambled around the countryside. Also found an excellent bar "Azahara" with excellent tapas and some main dishes. Also good was the restaurante "El Puente" but this is only open for lunch ( early/late afternoon)
