“Beautiful, magical find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

It looks like a barren grey lump of rock from afar but drive up to the natural park and it is the most wonderful oasis of pine woods, wild flowers, clear mountain streams and clouds of butterflies. Give the coast a miss and head up here for a day you will not regret it.

“Not too difficult but VERY rewarding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

If you are reasonably fit this is a great day out - I've been up loads of times with walkers and non walkers alike - everyone always enjoys it. The views are fantastic. If you are lucky and there is low cloud that you pass through on the assent you will emerge into blue skies and wonderful cloudscapes, the effect is stunning. Go prepared, food, water, can be quite nippy up there in winter and in summer you will need a hat and plenty of sun protection. The path is well signposted. We saw wild Ibex and many different birds of prey.

“Beautiful mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

La Maroma, also known as Tejeda, at 2066 m of altitude, is the highest peak of the Sierra Tejeda, Cordillera Penibética, Spain.

From the town Canillas De Aceituno there is a walking path all the way up to the mountaintop of La Maroma. You have to try this. Just beautiful! - If you want to see detailed description of the walking route then see my profile on www.EveryTrail
