By Sara Irving / 21 Oct 2013

From the many hillside cafes and plazas of the bustling city of Granada, snow-capped mountains are visible just a short journey away.

On the slopes of these mountains are strings of tiny villages which housed the remnants of Spain's last Muslim communities; they have their own small but distinct role in Andalucia's history, and offer a calm and often stunningly beautiful destination for a day trip or few days' break from city life.
