This picturesque village is part of the “Barranco de Poqueira”, a steep land in the heart of Sierra Nevada National Park that preserves many of the typical signs of identity of the peculiar urbanism of the “Alpujarra granadina”, which has remained faithful to its Moorish origins, giving it a singular beauty.
Its narrow and steep streets are full of unforgettable sights, made up of white houses with flat roofs, popularly known as “terraos”, which are crowned with characteristic whitewashed chimneys, known as “tinaos”, which give the town a peculiar image. Starting with its location in the valley of the River Poqueira and going through the irrigation channels that cross some of its streets, collecting the snowmelt from Sierra Nevada, it is clear that water is a constant feature of the town.
The public laundry area of Pampaneira, located in the upper part of the village, can be found through Águila Street, from where there are excellent views of the church tower and the entire municipality. It is a roofed place made up of basins from which potable water flows.
The municipality of Pampaneira is about 67 km from Granada and can be reached via the A-44 motorway towards Motril, exit 164, and then via the A-348 and A-4132 roads.
The public laundry area has pedestrian access from the Church Square, which can be reached by vans and trucks.
