Los Coloraos Desert

LoadingAdd to My Granada

This beautiful spot located in Gorafe owes its name to the predominant reddish color of the geological formations of its clay soil. However, as the day advances, the desert offers an impressive amalgamation of shapes and a changing palette of ochers, vermilions and yellows. Sunrise and sunset are the ideal times to enjoy the splendor of the breathtaking landscape characterized by the capricious forms sculpted by erosion as reliefs in the badlands, so-called because of the aridity and the steep sided ravines that are present.

A four-wheel drive vehicle is essential to access Los Coloraos or, better still, the specialized services of one of the several companies that offer guided tours (SoloaventuraeventsAl Andalus Phototour, Tio Tobas and Garnata Tours). All of these allow you to enter and experience one of the most unique landscapes in Europe: its large gullies and the formations of sandstone of different colors are reminiscent of the spectacular landscapes of films and documentaries.
