Discover Sierra Nevada Spain

The Sierra Nevada is a mountain range that stretches primarily across the province of Grenada but also covers part of the south-western province of Almeria. It is the highest mountain range on the Iberian Peninsula, with Mount Mulhacén peaking at 3,480m and the summit of the Sierra Nevada is snow-covered all year-round. Unsurprisingly, winter sports are the region's main attraction, particularly when you bear in mind that it is also home to some of the country's most modern ski slopes, of which there are 86 in total, spreading over a distance of 50 miles. These attract skiers, snowboarders and cross-country skiers alike, who all come and admire the superb views of Grenada and the sea. Night-skiing is one of the more interesting experiences available to snow-lovers, though there is certainly far more to the Sierra Nevada than its ski slopes. In 1986, it was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve because of its abundant fauna and flora; indeed, the region is home to over 2,100 plant species, 116 of which are in danger of extinction.
