One of the most emblematic peaks of Sierra de Almijara, a classic climb to the top. Beside the characteristic pyramid-shape, this mountain is famous for being the witness of many battles between the Maquis (Spanish guerrillas) and the Civil Guard.
There is still a ruin of a Guardia Civil’s barracks on the top of the Lucero. With a bit of luck we can glimpse Mountain Goats, Golden and Bonelli’s Eagles. The views at the top are stunning, huge sweeps of Granada province. On clear days we can see Gibraltar and many miles of the coast of Africa.
