Location
"Pitres" the Moorish capital of the Alpujarras


Casa de Luz is situated in Pitres, 75km from Granada and 45km from the coast and is the ideal starting point for many different walks and also for hikes to the high peaks of the Sierra or the Mulhacen 3482 m.



Pitres has all the essential services unlike neighbouring villages amongst which are several bars, restuarants (including an exclusive vegetarian restaurant "La Alcachofa", supermarket, health food shop, bank, clinic, pharmacy and local artisan workshops to name but a few.

In addition Friday morning is market day in the plaza where all fresh produce, clothes and crafts can be bought. On market day the plaza turns into a busy yet colourful day with all kinds of locally grown fruit and vegetables on sale as well as local crafts.
With a diverse night life, one can choose to enjoy a chat in a tranquil bar with tapas or see Flamenco and live music concerts (jazz, world music, classical) are all regular events in summer. Another great advantage of being in Pitres is that it is in the centre of the High Alpujarras and many of the best walks pass through or near it.
