Walk in Spain's highest sierra; from Moorish Los Berchules to beautiful Granada
The Sierra Nevada towers over southern Spain as the second highest mountain range in Europe. With fertile valleys of chestnut forests and high moorlands covered in lavender and broom, we are rewarded with some of the finest walking in southern Spain. On our journey through picturesque villages, we learn of their Roman and Moorish influences and savour the local food. We also enjoy one full day in the Moorish city of Granada, home to the magnificent Alhambra Palace.
