the world's most spectacular roads

Pico Papeles

Pico Papeles is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.462m (8,077ft) above the sea level, located in Granada, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, in Southern Spain. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of the country.

The road to the summit, located in the Sierra Nevada National Park, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Due to the high elevations and exposure, the road is subject to strong winds and rapid weather changes. Be prepared for the cold and wind! High winds blow here all year long. At the summit is a mountain refuge called Refugio de Piedra Partida constructed in 1988.
