The surrounding area
High on the striking green, southern slopes of the Sierra de Tejeda & Almijara mountains, lie the picturesque 'white' villages of sun kissed Andalusia. The Roman and Arab civilizations have left their mark on the landscape and culture of this region. It is wonderful to walk in the small villages of the Pueblos Blancos or cycle through steep, narrow alleys through an 800-year-old Moorish past. In the surrounding area you will find impressive cultural cities such as Sevilla, Córdoba and Granada for an extra variety in your holiday in Andalusia.

Where shall we stroll to today?
Just an example: A brisk day of hiking, will let you climb the peaks of the Maroma (2,067m) and Lucero (1,779m) mountains. But there are also several shorter and lighter walks possible. Fast-flowing mountain streams and rivers, irrigation canals and fields are interspersed with rugged abysses, peaks rising high into the blue sky and authentic white mountain villages. Olive, orange and almond trees surround the villages on the sun-lit terraces.
There are countless hiking routes available in this beautiful nature park and there is something to do and see for everyone!
