Horseback riding in Andalusia in the Sierra Nevada. In the south of Andalusia, the Sierra Nevada rises above the Mediterranean: the highest massif in Spain, formed by a succession of domes and donkeys. From the height of 3,478 meters, on clear days, you can see from your horse, the African coast. Due to its isolation and altitude, the massif is the refuge of countless endemic plants adapted to its Mediterranean latitude. It includes 66 plant species as well as 80 animal species. The Sierra Nevada is classified as a biosphere reserve by the UNESCO. A large part of its territory has also been classified as a National Park for its natural resources.
