La Paz is in the Poniente Granadino
- western Granada province: to the south and
west lie the mountains and beyond them the Mediterranean;
to the east is the fertile Vega - plain - of Granada
and to the north lie farming country and more mountains.
Ancient Loja, beloved of the Moors
who lived here over 600 years ago, is just a few miles
away and for everyday shopping Huétor Tájar, a renowned
asparagus and artichoke growing centre is just down
the road. Granada, and its Alhambra Palace, is a short
drive away and it is also possible to visit Antequera,
Malaga, Cordoba or even Seville if you enjoy sightseeing.
