Yegen may not be as picturesque as villages like Pampaniera and Capileira – nor as large as Órgiva and Ugíjar. However, it is worthy of mention because it was the setting for ‘South from Granada’ by the celebrated English author Gerald Brenan. He lived in Yegen between 1920 and 1930. A number of famous friends visited him there including Virginia Woolf.
