Lecrin Valley


Nigüelas is one of the villages of the Lecrin valley – a beautiful rural, largely agricultural area south of Granada. Each village has it’s own charm and character. There are lovely sleepy villages nestling in citrus groves such as Saleres and Melegís as well as bustling small market towns like Padul and Durcal. It’s a wonderful area for a drive, a walk and a spot of lunch!
