About Lanjaron: 

Lanjarón is situated on what was the old Moorish silk route and, as it provided a natural gateway to the Alpujarra region, it was considered to be of some strategic importance during Muslim rule.

Whether you are on a day trip from Granada or you are looking for a base from which to explore La Alpujarra, that is not too far from the city or the coast, the spa town of Lanjarón is a great destination.  

It is only 15 minutes from the motorway, A-44/E-902 Autovía Sierra Nevada, and has much to offer.  


It is thought that the settlement of Lanjarón, which lies at the foot of Cerro de Caballo on the south-western foothills of the Sierra Nevada, dates back to pre-Roman times and that its name stems from the word lanchar meaning place of abundant water. 

The Alpujarras are particularly popular with walkers, hikers and cyclists as there are many well established walks in the region. Lanjaron is also a SPA town, producing water which is bottled and sold all over Spain. Many tourists come to visit the spa, which also has its own hotel: http://balneariodelanjaron.com, but if you live in Lanjaron you can visit any time for mineral baths, a variety of spa treatments, massage, etc.
