There have been a few changes to the Alpujarras roads, which makes a new road map useful. The Granada – Motril highway A-44 has been finished and connected with the A-346 to Torvizcón. Works have been going on to improve and alter the route of the A-348 between Cádiar, Yátor and Ugíjar and to connect it with the A-347 to Berja.
The renovation of the A-348 from Torvizcón to Cádiar was already finished two years ago. It needs to be said though, that this road has suffered a lot of rain damage and that at some parts only one lane is available. The rest of the A-348 and the A346 is problem free.
Google maps is up-to-date but most paper maps and internet map scans are obsolete. It would appear that a perfect map of the region’s roads doesn’t actually exist. Even Google Maps has mistakes on the smaller roads and you need to really zoom in to see them, losing the overview completely.
The official Granada road map of the obras publicas of the Junta de Andalucia(pdf) is also far from complete. That is why we decided to edit this map ourselves to put in the connections for example between Nieles, Tímar and Lobras as wel as the road to El Golco. By all means, do advise us on other corrections or alterations we should apply to the map below.
