Busquístar is located in a privileged natural environment, next to the ravine formed by the Trévelez River and inside the Sierra Nevada national park. It was previously known as el paraíso escondido de los mozárabes (the hidden paradise of the Mozarabic).
The exact origins of this village are not known, but evidence shows that is could be as early as the 13th century. As a result, there are many remains and influences of the Arab dynasty in this area for example: an old mosque and an oil mill, although only the ruins are left. La Iglesia Parroquial de San Felipe y San Santiago however, survives, although it has been through several restorations.
Outside of the village centre, visitors will find an ideal location for hiking or adventure sports, 4x4 routes and mountain climbing.
In Busquístar, ceramics are the typical produce, made by hand. Workshops exist here with potters who have worked in the trade for years; visitors can attend and create their own ceramic souvenirs.
