Trevelez is 1,476 metres over the sea level. It is one of the highest villages in Spain.
Situated on the side of the mountain of Mulhacén, among ravines and hilltops, Trevélez is the ideal place for go hiking.
The city centre is divided into three clearly differentiated areas: the higher, middle, and lower quarters. It continues down to the banks of the Trevélez river, where trouts are plentiful, and the spectacular high-mountain scenery attracts and seduces every visitor.
The township of Trevélez is a part of the Sierra Nevada Nature Reserve, located on the northern slope.
