The Pyrenees, which Spain shares with France, despite the appearance do not actually contain the highest peak of Spain, which is Mount Teide, a volcano on Tenerife in the Canary Islands. They do, however, attract the biggest number of skiing aficionados in the whole country due to the variety of pistes and quality of snow. Its highest peak Aneto is 3,404 m (11,168′). Located not far from it is, along with Sierra Nevada in Andalucia, the most popular skiing location in the Peninsula Iberica – twin towns now called Baquiera-Beret. It’s here where the Royal Family likes to spend their winter skiing vacation and so do many of their countrymen, but there’s no shortage of international crowd including travelers flying to ski here from South America.
