Mulhacen (3478 m) is the highest peak in the Iberian Peninsula and the second in Spain. It is located in the Sierra Nevada National Park, in Granada.
You can climb it in a single day from the villages of Capileira or Trevélez. However, the most common and fun thing is to spend a night in the Poqueira mountain hut, or in the bivouac of La Caldera next to its beautiful lagoon.
