In the north west of the Granada Province, about 35 kilometres from Granada City, along the N432 towards Cordoba, is the lovely hillside village of Moclín. The situation is hard to beat in terms of historical interest and stunning views from its altitude of 1,065 metres above sea level. It is on the route of the Caliphs and has an impressive 14 th century Moorish Castle looking into the valley.
There are breathtaking vistas towards the snow capped Sierra Nevada Mountains as well as down into Granada, home of the famous Alhambra. For a taste of Andalusian village life, this is a good choice as a place to stay when visiting the provinces of Granada and Cordoba. Of great interest in close proximity to the village are many traces of prehistoric man, in the form of cave paintings and Neolithic stone formations. (Andalucia.com)
