Welcome to Parque Natural Sierra de las Nieves
Southeast of Ronda lies the virtually uninhabited Parque Natural Sierra de las Nieves, noted for its rare Spanish fir, the pinsapo, large caves, and fauna including some 1000 ibex and various species of eagle. The nieve (snow) after which the mountains are named usually falls between January and March. El Burgo, a remote but attractive village 10km north of Yunquera on the A366, makes a good base for visiting the east and northeast of the park. The spa town of Tolox, 35km southeast of El Burgo, is another good option.
