Photographer's Note

Hello friends today I present this gift shop located in a building characteristic of the Alpujarra. A few weeks ago we made a trip to Granada and from there we move to this charming village in the Alpujarras, Pampaneira, is a town that I love for its unique architecture, this store is an example. Hope you like.

Pampaneira is a Spanish municipality belongs to the province of Granada. It is located in the ravine of Poqueira, in west-central part of the Granada Alpujarra, about 66 km from the provincial capital. It borders the municipalities of Bubión, Capileira, La Taha, Orgiva, Carataunas and Soportújar. Much of the municipality belongs to the Sierra Nevada National Park and Historic Joint Poqueira Ravine.

When the Kingdom of Granada surrendered to Ferdinand and Isabella, many residents took refuge in the Alpujarras and continued for almost eighty years with their customs, religion and language. Were the Moors from Granada, who endured in their rugged mountains, until Don John of Austria, special envoy of King Philip II, ended the violent war existed.

The subsequent depopulation was complete and had to repopulate the land with Castilian Alpujarras, but especially Galicia and Leon, in an edict of 1487 was said that this noble participate in the War of Granada get redemption for their crimes. It was, therefore, a pressing invitation made to nobles and their servants to leave Galicia and to enroll in the campaign, and so hicieron.1 is why the names of many places in the area-Capileira, Poqueira, Ferreira , Xumpaneira and Pampaneira, for example-are reminiscent of Galicia.
