The white-washed village of Moclin sits atop a mountain in the province of Granada, Andalucia, Spain. With the distant snow-capped Sierra Nevada to the east, Moclin is at an altitude of around 1,000m. An important historical site, the ruined castle was of strategic importance during the Catholic conquest, and ultimately led to the fall of the Moorish empire on mainland Spain. The Ibex Multi-Day passes several sites of cultural and historical significance, including Neolithic cave paintings and Roman villas.
