Navapelegrín is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.710m (5,610ft) above the sea level, located in the Province of Segovia, in the Castilla-La Mancha Autonomous region of central Spain.
The road to the summit is paved, with some concrete sections. It’s pretty narrow. Open to traffic throughout the year, may be closed for short periods in winter when the weather is bad.
