spainSpain is located between Europe and Africa and as such boasts a range of contrasting natural attractions. The stretching, golden coastline is, of course popular with tourists, but there are many other natural beauties. The mountains regions of Spain reach their greatest height at the Pyrenees in the North and the Sierra Nevada in the South. The Pyrenees act as Spain's link to Europe with more than 400 protected natural areas to conserve the principal mainland. The Sierra Nevada contains the highest peak on the mainland Mt. Mulhacén, which rises to 3.482 metres. This area is home to peaceful alpine lakes and glaciers. National parks, game reserves and adventure facilities are just some of the attractions here. In the north of Spain, the Basque Country contains meadows, beaches and winding paths to hilltop retreats. The Meseta, opens out onto another of Spain's most impressive areas of scenery. Running along the centre, a mountainous region cuts the land into two well-defined physical and historical units.
