The Sierra Nevada is a rock massif that forms a clearly distinct geographical unit. It is located southeast of the city of Granada and stretches along the western end of Almeria. It offers a striking contrast between the soft reliefs of hills to other more abrupt areas. The highest peaks of the Peninsula are found in this Reserve: Mulhacen (3.482 meters) and Veleta (3 meters).
The main plant communities that dot this rock massif are groves of holm oaks, deciduous forests, chestnut and Melojo oaks, high mountain groves and padded scrub on the highest peaks, where the space forms a cushion to protect against winter temperatures and icy winds.
As for the 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.
