The Puerto de La Ragua Recreational Resort Consortium is located in the Sierra Nevada National Park, but in a lesser known area straddling the provinces of Granada and Almeria. the Puerto de La Ragua is a natural bridge between two very different regions that have managed to keep their customs, traditions and lifestyle intact, despite the passage of time.

At an altitude of 2,000 metres, the Puerto de La Ragua Recreational Resort arrogantly dominates the surrounding geographical area from La Alpujarra, the beaches of Almeria, the Cabo de Gata, the Sierras de Baza, Cazorla, Segura y las Villas and the Marquesado Plateau, to the snowy peaks of the National Park.

The countless activities include: hiking, orienteering, mountain biking, horse riding, long-distance, extreme and cross-country skiing, mushing, sledding, hiking, climbing, paragliding, archery, etc.

In the Puerto de la Ragua Ski Resort you will find a Shelter-Refuge for up to 32 people, with toilets, showers, a lounge, bar-restaurant, equipment and sledge rental and an information point. The following sports facilities are available:
