A stretch of the old N-340 coastal road between Nerja and La Herradura (Granada province) has now been a constant entry in the ‘top ten’ of Spain’s most dangerous roads for more than a decade. Very picturesque route, though, despite the danger.
To be specific, it is the section between kilometre 296.4 and 312.9 that has the unenviable title of being the second most dangerous road in the whole of Spain. It is only being kept from top spot by the N-634 in Cantabria, between kilometres 232.8 and 243.1.
In third place is the N-230 in Barcelona, from kilometre 6.6 to 14.8. Fourth place goes to the N-345 in Murcia, from kilometre 0 to 7.2, and fifth place goes to the N-234 in Aragon, from kilometre 248.2 to 259.6.
