Sierra Nevada National Park


Description

Here you'll find the highest peaks on the Iberian peninsula: the Mulhacén and the Veleta. This area has one of the greatest biodiversities in the world, and is an opportunity to see summits with glacial origins, lakes, pine forests, riverbank ecosystems… It is home to more than 2,000 species of plants. But there is one very special one: the 'star of the snows', which is commonly found above 2,300 metres and creates genuine carpets of white among the greenery of the pastures. What animals can you find there? Amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds… There is one particularly characteristic species: the Spanish ibex. What's on offer in the park? Footpaths, nature workshops, botanical gardens, mountain refuges and the High-Mountain Area Environmental Education Service. This takes place in summer, by minibus and accompanied by a guide. Another attraction worth mentioning is the Sierra Nevada ski resort (next to the park). The area is also the ideal place for mountain activities.
