Bañuela or La Bañuela, also known as La Mójina,[1] is the highest peak of the Sierra Morena, Spain.

Description[edit]

The mountain is 1,332 m high and it is located in a range known as Sierra de Navalmanzano, part of the Sierra Madrona range, at the southern end of Ciudad Real Province, Castile-La Mancha. It is mostly covered with matorral scrubland where plants such as Cistus, Erica and rosemary predominate.

There is a good hiking route to reach the peak starting from Fuencaliente,[2] but there is no marked path to reach the peak after reaching a certain height. This makes it difficult to find the summit in misty weather. There is a triangulation pillar on the crest, but it is not exactly at the highest point, which is located nearby.[3]
