This short film may help anyone driving to Órgiva from the West – ie, from the direction of Málaga, Motril and Salobreña. It begins at the tunnel after a stretch of road we call the curly-wurly – not that the previous 20 minutes is some kind of straight Roman road.
After the bridge you cross Seven Eye(s) Bridge with amazing views of the Río Guadalfeo.
It shows the turnings into the town centre, driving through it and then getting out to places like Pampaneira, Bubión and Trevélez.
On the subject of driving, here are some suggestions if you’re hiring a lower-end car: get at least a 1.2 litre engine; make sure you know how the lights work (there are many tunnels between Málaga and Órgiva); keep between 2nd and 3rd gear on the curly-wurly bits.
See you in Órgiva. [There’s also this post about driving in Las Alpujarras.]
