What will you find?

Enclaved in the central part of the Penibetic Mountain, the Sierra Nevada massif constitutes the most extensive mountainous area in Spain, with a structure all of its own. Called "Sierra of the Sun" by the Arabs, it houses one of the most diverse range of fauna in Europe.

Sierra Nevada is a rocky massif that forms a clearly distinct geographical unit. It is located to the south-east of the city of Granada and extends along the western end of Almeria. It offers a sharp contrast between the soft relief of hillocks to other more rugged areas. The tallest peaks on the Peninsula can be found in this Reserve: Mulhacen (3,482 meters) and Veleta (3,392 meters).

The main plant communities dotted over this rocky massif are the holm oak groves, deciduous forests, chestnut trees and Melojo oaks, high mountain groves and padded brushwood on the very highest summits, where the species form a cushion to protect themselves from the winter temperatures and icy winds.

As for fauna, there are invertebrates that are exclusive to this massif, including more than 20 species of butterflies.

On the way back to the hotel you will have the opportunity to sample a local tapas menu.
