Pinsapo de las Escaleretas Natural Monument
The Spanish fir, pinsapo in Spanish (abies pinsapo), is a rare tree most commonly found in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park. The pinsapo de las Escaleretas is the oldest pinsapo on record at over 350 years old. Its dimensions are impressive: it is 26m high, with a trunk measuring 5m in its circumference and branches that cover an area of 200m².
It is situated in a protected area of 0.20ha at an altitude of 1,000m within the Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park.
Enter the Sierra de las Nieves Natural park from the San Pedro to Ronda Road, the A376 at km136. There is a reasonably surfaced road that extends about 10km which leads to Cortijo de los Quejigales where the pinsapo is found.
