The surroundings of the path of the star: Sierra Nevada
La vereda de la estrella is situated in the mid-mountains of the Sierra Nevada of Granada. Specifically, the path is located at the head of the Genil river valley, in the San Juan ravine. This access to the mountain was traditionally used as the natural entrance to the mountain from Granada. The people from Granada followed the river up to its source and so little by little they went deeper into the mountains.
This privileged mid-altitude location in the imposing Sierra Nevada, makes that the path of the star preserves some fascinating natural ecosystems. A flora and fauna that deserves to be preserved to be able to continue enjoying it for a long time.
This is our village of reference to get to the beginning of the trail. It is a typical white village of the Andalusian mountain range, located at an altitude of just over 1,000 metres above sea level. The village enjoys spectacular views of the Mulhacen (3,482 m), the highest peak on the Iberian Peninsula.
