Around 2.5km before you reach El Burgo, the traditional white town, there is a sign-post and turning on the left for Sierra de las Nieves natural park. Turn down this road and continue for around 9km.

You will reach a designated camping area with a gate at the end labelled 'Private'. We will have informed you where the key is kept upon booking so simply open the gate and continue on (please remember to lock the gate after you!). More details can be sent via email.

 

You're now in the Convent grounds so simply drive down the hill, following the white arrows for El Convento. If you look to the right, you should see the retreat - head for that!
