Puerto de las Palomas

Puerto de las Palomas, a road very winding with steep slopes

Puerto de las Palomas is a mountain pass, at an elevation of 1.357m (4,452ft) above the sea level, located in Andalusia, Spain. The road over the pass, within the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, links Grazalema and Zahara de la Sierra villages. Access from Zahara de la Sierra is performed by a road very winding with steep slopes.

The road still remains an adrenaline-pumping journey and is definitely not for the faint of lungs, heart, or legs. There are great views from the summit, and there's a nice hiking path to see the northern part of provinces of Cadiz and Málaga as well as the southern part of the Seville one. The experience of using this road is very impressive. The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow. 

The road includes some steep sections, without market central lines, is very narrow, scarcely wide enough for two cars to pass at the same time and there are no protections or guard rails along some parts of the route. The surface of the road is asphalted.
