La Mira (2,341 ms) is one of the most visited peaks of Sierra de Gredos, the main subrange of the Sistema Central, a long group of mountain ranges dividing the Iberian Peninsula in two. I am offering an amazing hike to its summit, which provides impressive panoramic views of the entire area.

Sierra de Gredos stretches 140km between Cerro Guisando and Rio Alagón, in Central Spain. Its relief is dominated by valleys with big number of rivers and creeks. This hike lead us to the summit of La Mira (2,343 m.),one of its most visited mountains.

This peak is easy to climb and stands in a wonderful environment: from its top we will enjoy a spectacular view of Circo de Gredos, an amazing glacial cirque, the very imposing rock faces of Galayos, and in the distance the Montes de Toledo.

The traverse to La mira’s summit is a 18km circular trail. It starts at Plataforma de Gredos and ascends to Puerto del Peón via Garganta de la Covacha. We will pass by Laguna del Cura, a glacier lagoon with water during the entire year. Another beautiful spot is El Raso (2,241 m.),with a magnificent view of the Back of the Galayos, a popular climbing area.

So, if you want to explore Sierra de Gredos in this hiking trip, please contact me! Let me guide you to the summit of La mira to enjoy a beautiful and unforgettable view!

And if you have more time to spend around this area, I hardly recommend you my 2-day hike around Sierra de Gredos, Spain.

About the Guide


I love mountains, nature, animals and sports. That's why I became a guide, so I can share with others these passions and amazing places.

I live in a small town called Plasencia, surrounded by the beautiful Sierra de Gredos, La Vera (Gredos south face with nice canyons), Jerte Valley (with Garganta de los Infiernos Nature Reserve and it's famous cherries), Monfragüe National Park, Sierra de Gata...

I started guiding in 2002, and obtained my AEGM and UIMLA guide certifications in 2012. My hobbies are closely related to my work: climbing, alpinism, canyoning, btt, kayaking, skiing...

If you want to discover the Spanish mountains, getting to know the customs, people, and hidden places, come with me and let's begin the adventure!
