A biosphere reserve but also a hunting reserve since 1966, the park is home to two of the highest summits on the peninsula: the Mulhacén (11,421 ft) and the Veleta (11,148 ft). The 213,025 acres of park are home to 65 local botanical species. The A395 road will take you to the Sierra Nevada ski resort where the landscapes are beautiful.
