Hiking in Spain - Andalucía (Chapter)
This is the Andalucía chapter from Lonely Planet's Hiking in Spain guidebook.
Large tracts of mountain country, green river valleys, abundant wildlife and long stretches of dramatic coast make up Andalucía's surprisingly rich natural attractions. Add to this its quiet trails and mainland Spain's highest peak, Mulhacén (3479m), and you'd be crazy to miss walking here.
- zigzag along medieval stone paths between the villages of the Alpujarras
- play peek-a-boo with the clouds while scrambling through mainland Spain's highest range
- dance along dramatic desert cliffs on the Cabo de Gata Coast walk
- restaurants & accommodation
