Photographer's Note

Bubiσn is one of the high mountain villages situated in the La Alpujarra region on the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada. Sitting proudly in the midst of the Poqueira Ravine, it is the middle one of the three traditional Moorish villages located here (Capileira and Pampaneira are the others).

The village dates back to Roman times but is perhaps more famous for its Moorish origins. Hence the classic architecture of the village, identical to Berber originals in the Atlas mountains of Northern Africa. Characterised by flat roofs and prominent chimney pots, the houses spill down the steep mountainside, connected by little walkways and by just one, narrow, winding, cobbled street.

In 2003, Bubiσn's population was estimated as 357, of whom 48 did not hold Spanish nationality, the majority of them coming from other states of the European Union. The village had 170 tourist beds.
