Atarfe in Granada is located in the fertile flat lands of the Vega de Granada, a wide area covered with the greenery of the poplar trees and the well looked after irrigated plains that the river Genil waters in its gentle flow towards the west. To this privileged location that can be appreciated from the breathtaking natural balcony in Sierra Elvira mountain range, one can add its proximity to the city of the Alhambra.
