Designated as National Park well functioning transportation to the Visitors Center & quaint drive from Antequera. Has a restaurant & a little museum. We’re lucky that the day was very bright & sunny where you could see miles away from the top.

We did the yellow two hour walk and although it was foggy, it was one of the best things we did in Andalusia - highly recommended. In winter, dress warmly and bring good walking shoes.

The drive up to here is worth it alone. If you can get out and take the trails then it will take your breath away. Beautiful.

It is not easy, but it can be done. Taxi from Antiquera is 23 euros one way. There are also tour groups that can be arranged from Antiquera (Sendero Sur is one such agency).
