The village is situated at 873 meters above sea level and has 1825 inhabitants (2014). There has been human settlement from early prehistoric times. Numerous remains have been found in what is now the municipality, especially from the Bronze Age.  Currently many families of Granada have chosen this village to build their second home.


A great part of the municipality is situated inside Natural Park Sierra Nevada, so it is a perfect basis for starting your hiking or mountain bike excursions. At the Dilar river is a nice recreational area with tables and benches for your picnic.
