Bubion  is one of three mountain villages of the Barranco poqueira (the other 2 being Pampaniera and Capiliera) and it is the second of the 3 you come to when driving from Orgiva.   It has various craft shops selling the locally produced rugs as well as other items and a variety of bars and restaurants.   If you find somewhere to park the car and wander around on foot you will find enchanting winding streets with hidden away houses and archways and stunning views across the valley.  .  It is a fairly quiet village except towards the end of August when the annual fiesta takes over and there is much drinking and dancing and celebration.

Ironically this is the quietest village of the three, but perhaps the nicest. It is many hidden gems inside the narrow alleyways. As you walk up and down the village you will discover lots of nice little hidden cafes, bars and restaurants.

The best way to see the village is to park your car on the main road car park and then start walking around.

If you feel energetic the walk to Pamaneira is one of the loveliest walks around. It takes about 30 minutes going down and a bit longer coming up. Just go down on the side of the church and you will see the signs saying “ camino Pameneira”follow this lovely roman route.

You can do the same walk up to Capiliera though not as nice. Bubion as well as Pameneira and Capiliera are all on the route PR-70 known as “Sendero Pueblo de Poquiera.
