Sierra Nevada is a mountain massif located in Andalusia, belonging to the Betic mountain range, specifically to the Penibetic system. Located between the provinces of Granada and Almería, it is the highest mountain massif in Western Europe after the Alps. Its maximum altitude is the peak Mulhacén3479 m above sea level. In 1999 a large part of the massif became a national park (it is one of the three national parks in Andalusia together with Doñana in Huelva and the Sierra de las Nieves in Malaga) because of its botanical, scenic and natural values.
In addition to its biodiversity in terms of fauna and flora of this unique natural environment in our region, Sierra Nevada is known for the various sports that can be practiced outdoors throughout the year. In this sense you can find hiking routes in summer such as the Vereda de la Estrella or the Sulayr Route, sleep in any of its three refuges (Poqueira, Posteiro or Puerto de la Ragua) or practice cycling and crown its great peaks with your road bike or if you are more adventurous with your mountain bike.
