The Village of Sorvilán

The Sorvilán region descends towards the Mediterranean from a thousand meters of altitude in La Contraviesa Mountain range. The Sorvilán offers vibrant landscapes of deep ravines and gorges, mountains, boulevards, and beaches. The lost cortijadas and villages that form a panorama of stark white brilliance between the blue of the sea, the green of the fertile plains and the ochre of the mountain ranges are a must-see. The Sorvilán region is dotted by groves of ancient oaks and strong cork oaks, which are the remains of an extensive forest that once covered the area. A thick cork oak grove remains in the surroundings of Alfornón.

Sorvil├ín is on the easternmost edge of the Granada province to the east of the Costa Tropical and borders on the Almer├şa province, a desert area that offers incredible attractions of its own. Access information on the Almer├şa province for more recommended tourist destinations.
