Malaga hiking Sierra de las nieves
In the northeast of the province of Malaga you will find the mountain range of La Sierra de la Nieves, which extends across the towns of Alozaina, Casarabonela, El Burgo, Guaro, Istán, Monda, Ojen, Tolox, Yunquera, Parauta and part of Ronda. In total occupies an area of 93.930 hectates.
This natural space was declared a Nature Reserve in 1989. Deep in the heart of three very different geographical areas, the mountain range of Serrania de Ronda, the valley of Valle del Guadalhorce and the western coastline of the Costa del Sol, the area has a complex relief: over a few kilometres it rise from 100 m above sea level to almost 2.000 m at the highest peaks.
This natural space today serves as a habitat for golden eagles and mountain goats. The flora richness of the area should be stressed: a singular species, the Spanish Fir, grows here.
