Andalusia Sights

Mulhacén

  • Mountain–Sight

Fodor's Review

To the east of Granada, the mighty Mulhacén, the highest peak in mainland Spain, soars to 11,427 feet. Legend has it that it came by its name when Boabdil, the last Moorish king of Granada, deposed his father, Muly Abdul Hassan, and had the body buried at the summit of the mountain so that it couldn't be desecrated. For more information on trails to the two summits, call the National Park Service office (958/763127, www.nevadensis.com) in Pampaneira.
