The origin of Capileira
Its origin is in the time of the Goths in the Iberian Peninsula.
Besides, most of its municipal area belongs to the Sierra Nevada Natural Park. Even the summits of the Veleta and Mulhacén peaks, which it shares with Güéjar Sierra and Trevélez. That is why it is one of the three highest municipalities of the peninsula. The whole municipality is also part of the Historical Complex of the Barranco del Poqueira.
This village is located in the upper part of the Poqueira valley, on the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada.
Almost all the place names in the Alpujarra of Granada have a Latin origin. And in our case Capileira would derive from the Latin word capillaris-e = head, that is, the highest point of the Ravine.
It is also the closest town to the high peaks. We could say that we are in the “Gateway to the Sierra Nevada” because of its southern slope.
Bubión de “Bovis” = land of oxen. Pampaneira de pampinus = land of pampers. Poqueira from the adjective porcarius.a-um, which means “furrow that opens between the lands so that they give off the water.
The whole municipality of Capileira is a Historic-Artistic Site and a Picturesque Place.
Other information about Capileira
In 1996, it hosted the 15th Festival of Traditional Music of the Alpujarra.
Its location, and its altitude of almost one thousand five hundred meters above sea level offers its visitors the best views of the Ravine. That is why it has several viewpoints, and specifically from the Eras de Aldeire you can see the peaks of the Mulhacén and the Veleta. This makes it unique.
This is also the starting point for various hiking routes.
Another of its most unique attractions is its architecture of Berber origin. Because the ancient mountain villages of North Africa, left their influences. That is why the Council of Europe has given it the title of model of popular architecture.
Although the origins of the region date back to the Phoenicians, Romans and Visigoths, it was the Arabs who had the greatest influence. Because they left their mark on:
- irrigation systems
- linguistic roots
Thanks to its contribution of a culture of seven hundred years of stay in the Peninsula.
During the last decades tourism has started to stand out in the local economy.
