Alcolea, located in the heart of the alpujarra region between the Gador and Sierra Nevada mountain rangers, boasts nor only the tallest century-old olive trees in the world which grow all about in plots and terraces, but also a series of scenic vantage points for viewing the beautiful landscape of the Alpujarra villages.

The traveller who happens upon Alcolea has a unique opportunity to get to know an authentic Alpujarra village, with its hermitage of San Sebastian and San Ildefonso. One festival that will attract his attention is the burial of the fox. At ten in the morning a hearty breakfast of rolls, wine, coffee and chocolate in the town hall plaza opens the festival, which consists of parading through the streets of the village with a rag animal while singing jesting songs. The festival ends with the burning of the fox and a number of musical events.
