Pedro Antonio Alarcón wrote several travel books and among them La Alpujarra (1873), in which he describes the customs, history and traditions of that region of Spain, and emphasizes the conflicts of the Moors of the Alpujarra during the rebellion that caused their expulsion.

Other books by Linkgua refer to the history of this region of Spain: War of Granada; History of the War of Grenada; Aben Humeya or The rebellion of the Moors and Rebellion and punishment of the Moors.
