Save the Cordoba Mosque:
please, sign the petition.

Salvemos la Mezquita de Córdoba · Por una Mezquita-Catedral de todos

The Catholic church in Spain has been exploiting to it's financial advantage the World Heritage Site of the Cordoba Mosque (Mezquita) for decades.

They now even pretend to turn this public site into church estate. They actually have already banned the term Mezquita (Mosque) to impose religious monopoly, while the Mezquita is actually one of the few great universal paradigms of harmony between cultures (main reason why it was declared World Heritage in the first place).

Public pressure is needed towards the government of Andalusia to keep this monument as public property instead of loosing it to private, christian dominion.

La Alpujarra, Granada - Andalusia

Sierra Nevada, national park and ski resort  - Andalusia, Spain. La Alpujarra, Naturgebiet, Granada - Andalusien, Spanien. La Alpujarra, parco naturale, Granada - Andalusia, Spagna. La Alpujarra, área naturel  |  Grenade - l'Andalousie, Espagne. Sierra Nevada, nationaal park en skigebied - Andalusië, Spanje. La Alpujarra, Granada - Andalucía, España.


The Alpujarra (or Alpujarras) is a large mountain area some thirty miles south from Granada city and only 25 miles from the coast. It is part of the province of Granada and of the province of Almeria.


The Alpujarra is well known for the beauty and peacefulness of its white towns; its mountain landscapes, the house balconies full of flowers; its friendly people and the atmosphere they create - and most importantly - the spectacular backcloth of the Sierra Nevada. All of these attributes led to it being designated a Global Reserve by UNESCO , as well as a National park and a Nature reserve , especially for its native flowers and distinctive ecosystems.



History of the Alpujarra

The history of Alpujarra is important because it was the last refuge of the Arabs in Andalucia . It was here that Boabdil, the last Moorish king, lived for some months after the Christians captured the city of Granada. And, it was to the Alpujarra that the Moors, who refused to convert to Christianity, fled and found refuge during almost a century before they were finally expelled.

The Alpujarra also still have many features of Berber culture, particularly in everyday houses and in their unique irrigation aqueducts that farmers are still using.




Among the settlements that make up the Alpujarra we must draw attention to the villages of the Barranco de Poqueira:

Capileira, Pampaneira y Bubión.

But other towns have their own charm as well and they are worth a visit: la Taha, Pitres, Ferreirola, Trévelez, Lanjarón, Busquistar, Orgiva, Portugos, amongst others.
