The Alpujarras area of Andalucía in southern Spain is famed for its white, Moorish villages. One of Válor’s claims to fame is that it is the birthplace of Aben Humeya, the notorious Morisco rebel (also known as Hernando de Córdoba y Válor), who led the 1568 revolt against the Christians.
Válor is situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains at the eastern end of the Alpujarras. It is a typical, picturesque Spanish village with a few shops, bars and restaurants. The village is surrounded by terraced farm land, much of which is still worked using traditional methods.
The nearest airports are Almería, which is an hour and a half drive away and Granada which is about two hours. They are both served by several British airlines including EasyJet, Ryanair and Monarch.
