Dólar

Dólar

In the northeast of Granada province adjacent to neighbouring Almeria is the sparsely populated 53,649ha Sierra de Baza Natural Park, part of the Cordillera Penibética. Its steep slopes are mainly pine-clad, up to the more barren, rocky ground over 2,000m. Its central part is made up of remote, jagged limestone peaks, which can be snow covered for some of the winter and are inhabited by majestic birds of prey.

The name of this municipality has little to do with the American currency, as Dolar is a typical, unspoilt mountain village. It is located at the foot of Sierra Nevada, among pines and chestnuts. In fact, it is part of the Natural Park of the same name. The houses in Dolar are nestled at the whims of its geography, surrounding the peak.
