Did you miss the autumn fair in Pampaneira last weekend? Never mind if you did, you’ve got a second chance at an Alpuarra autumn fair: Trevélez is holding theirs.
It might have been a dismal Easter, weather wise, but the drought continues, especially in the Alpujarra, where a lack of green pasture is costing farmers dearly.
The Guardia Civil had a hard time rescuing three young mountaineers from the bottom of the Barranco de Poqueira – 15 hours in all. It wasn’t until a helicopter arrived to winch them out of the El Hoyo that the rescue operation was complete.
