Hoya de la Mora

Hoya de la Mora, one of the highest roads of Spain

Hoya de la Mora is a high mountain pass, located in Granada, in the autonomous community of Andalusia (in Southern Spain) within the Sierra Nevada Park, at an elevation of 2.550m (8,366ft) above the sea level, on the A395 road. It's one of the highest mountain roads of Spain.

The road to the summit is asphalted but pretty steep. At the top there’s a military construction, at 2.556 m above the sea level, and several bars and restaurants. The A395 road is closed beyond that point, where it starts the closed road to Pico del Veleta, the highest asphalted road in Europe.
