The Village of Chite

In the Lecrín Valley, south of Granada city, is a village called Chite. It is in an ideal location as it is midway between the capital city and the Costa Tropical while at the edge of La Alpujarra. The proximity to Granada airport, ski lodges of the Sierra Nevada, fresh springs of Lanjarón, and the numerous beaches of Motril, Salobreña and Almuñécar make Chite an ideal spot to which one could escape. And if one wanted to, you could walk to the village of Lecrín. Nature is at its best here, blessed by a sub-tropical climate, and fertile land. Agriculture of citrus fruits, tropical fruits, almonds, olives and wine is the basic economy here. The true Andalucian character lives on here as rural tourism has just begun to take hold.

Walking about in both the upper and lower parts of the village can yield visual surprises in the Arab-inspired architecture, a reminder of this area's history. Although fast-entering the 21st century, the village is still small enough to retain its original character.
