The highest mountains on the Peninsula

This park combines scenic beauty and ecological importance, as well as being home to the highest peaks on the peninsula. It was declared a Biosphere Reserve by the UNESCO in 1986.

It is located to the southeast of Granada and extends to the eastern edge of Almería. It has both gentle slopes and steep cliffs, and is home to the highest peaks on the Iberian peninsula, the Mulhacén and the Veleta. It is a site of exceptional scenic value, shaped by its glacial origins and containing forests and diverse areas of natural vegetation. The park also has rich hydrological resources, including several natural mineral springs. Fifteen of its peaks are over 3,000 metres high.
