Las Alpujarras Museum of Popular Arts and Customs : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The museum set up in one of Capileira's traditional, Moorish-looking houses gives a moving account of daily life in the area in the 19C. It was here, in Las Alpujarras, an almost impregnable region, that the last of the Moriscos took refuge after Granada fell to the Catholic Monarchs in 1492. Although the 1569 rebellion led to the departure of the last Muslims, their farming methods and handicrafts have been continued up until quite recently.
