Driving the road to Tetica de Bacares is not a piece of cake

The road to the summit is mostly asphalted, but very steep and narrow. The final kilometre is especially challenging, with gradients between 14-17% on a corrugated concrete surface. The road is usually open throughout the year.

Set high within the Sierra de Filabres mountain range, in the Penibética Mountain Range, the summit hosts many communication towers. The road encompasses miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. From the top you get great views across various mountain ranges of Almeria. On a clear day you can see both the Tabernas Desert and the Sierra Nevada National Park.
