Discover the beauty of the Sierra Nevada
Spain’s Sierra Nevada – snow capped mountain range – is the second highest mountain range in Europe after the Alps.
It’s highest peak, Mulhacen, rises to 3482m. It has long provided the glistening backdrop to the Alhambra Palace and is snow capped nearly all year round, hence the name. Activities on offer in the mountains include skiing, snowboarding, and trekking alongside some more gentle pursuits in the Alpujarras, the rolling foothills to the south.
Where to go and what to do in the Sierra Nevada.
Avoid the crowds and get out into nature and the Spanish sunshine. Explore the Alpujarras, southern foothills of Granada’s Sierra Nevada, with a walking trip this Autumn.
Last weekend we took Little Miss Go GranadaSpain for her belated 5th birthday treat – a glamping trip in the La Taha Valley – and we had the most magical time!
My annual obsession with photographing almond blossom is in full swing. The blossom passes so quickly, giving way to even more colour and variety as spring picks up the pace.
