Out & About
Here are just a few of the things to do in this area
There are a number of way-marked routes in the area, which cater for those just wanting a leisurely stroll through to experienced mountain walkers. The routes range from forest tracks, ancient drover’s trails and footpaths, to goat and animal trails.
For the cyclist, at one end of the scale you can take it easy on the flat, exploring the wonderful plateau of the Altiplano de Granada. At the other end of the scale you can take on the climbs and cols of the surrounding mountains.
A stunning 1hr 30mins circular walk that has it all! It includes: a dramatic deep gorge, a tunnel, olive groves, fantastic views from the highest point in the village of Castril, and a stroll through it’s quaint streets.
There is a swimming pool located just outside the village of Castillejar, where locals and tourists alike can cool off during the hot summer months. As you can see by the photo there is plenty of tree shade to shelter from the summer sun. There is also a bar/restaurant by the pool for refreshments. There are many other local outdoor swimming pools to experience when out and about on your travels.
The Sierra Nevada (meaning “snowy range” in Spanish) is a mountain range in the region of Andalucia, provinces of Granada and Almería in Spain. It contains the highest point of continental Spain, Mulhacén at 3,478 metres (11,411 ft) above sea level.
It is a popular tourist destination, as its high peaks make skiing possible in one of Europe’s most southerly ski resorts – in an area along the Mediterranean Sea predominantly known for its warm temperatures and abundant sunshine. At its foothills is found the city of Granada and, a little further, Almería and Málaga.
