The most popular village in Sierra Nevada is well-known amongst snowsports enthusiasts: Monachil being the home of Europe’s southernmost ski resort and the only one in Andalucía. However, the attraction of the villages in this area is not limited to snow, as the majority of the area is part of the Sierra Nevada National Park. Here visitors will find fantastic routes to take on foot or, for the more adventurous, by horseback or mountain bike. This area also has areas ideal for fishing, such as the Coto de Pesca Intensiva Pinillos, located in the Pantano de Canales inside Pinos Genil. Many of these villages have slowly become dormitory villages for Granada city due to their proximity to the provincial capital.
