The village is on the opposite side of the valley, also close to the Sierra Nevada. There are bars, several supermarkets and a bakery, all of which can be found near the church.
On the outskirts of the village on the road towards Durcal is the restaurant Alqueria de los Lentos, a picturesque old water mill, a friendly place with good food, and which is a little more upscale than most other restaurants in the area. There are good walks from the village, into the national park. You need to tale the road down into the valley, across the river towards the head of the gorge. You can take a well established route to the Alpujarras town of Lanjaron. This takes about 4,5 hours.
