“A pleasant stop on the beautiful road over the Sierra Nevada”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Puerto de La Ragua sits at the highest point on the road crossing the Sierra Nevada mountains from Almeria to Granada. In the summer the cooler temperature offers a respite from the relentless heat of lower altitudes. There is a wooded area that is great for picnics. Also available is food & drink to purchase (as well as toilets). Great place to sit with a cool drink and enjoy the tranquillity of the mountain pass. The road up to the pass is very scenic from the south. As you start down towards Granada northwards you will come across the Mirador del Marquesado. Fantastic views over miles of countryside stretching in all directions - not to be missed.
