Caminito Del Rey

Caminito Del Rey

A bridge over the Sierra Huma River, hanging from vertical rocks from the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes (Gaitanes Gorge), a pathway that seems to come from a dream and not from the common need to join two power plans by the shortest way possible. A special engineering that turned fishermen, who were used to hanging from the rigging of their ships, into inland construction workers.

El Caminito del Rey is located in El Chorro, a village belonging to the municipality of Alora, near the Guadalhorce Valley region, located next to a reservoir on the Guadalhorce River, near Ardales in the province of Malaga. It is one of the main rock climbing centres in Europe due to its location next to the Gaitanes Gorge. At the edge of this gorge runs the Caminito del Rey, this amazing route and its dizzying footbridges trace a route between the canyons that run along the river Guadalhorce.
