This is the main resort town, with hotels, apartments, bars, shops, banks and restaurants. From here, two gondolas (cable cars called Borreguiles and Al-Andalus, take you up another 500m to connect to Borreguiles. Pradollano is where you arrive, by car or bus; you can leave your car in one of the car parks. Pradollano is divided into three areas Alta, Media and Baja (high, middle and low). The cable car station is in Baja.
