Walk El Caminito Del Rey with us! Also known as the King's Pathway, this is a very unusual walkway, now fallen into disrepair, pinned along the steep walls of the narrow gorge of El Chorro, near Malaga (approximately 2 hours drive from Gibraltar). The walkway has now gone many years without maintenance, and is in a highly deteriorated state. It is approx 1m wide, and is over 200m (700ft) above the river. Nearly the entire path has no handrail. Some parts of the walkway have completely collapsed and have been replaced by a (Via Ferrata) beam and a metallic wire on the wall.
Puerto Banus, as we know it, began its development in the early 70's on one of the most beautiful spots in Marbella. It was designed and developed by Jose Banús, who was actually a very close friend of the dictator Franco. This astonishing settlement, with its distinctive style in such amazing weather all year round, has always been one of the favourite destinations of the rich and famous worldwide. In the actual Marina and in the surrounding areas, you can find plenty of designer Boutiques and good Restaurants.
La Sierra del Torcal is situated some ten kilometres from the town of Antequera which, with its eastern foothills, the Sierra Pelada, results in an awesome view of majestic mountain ranges punctuated by intriguing rock formations and angles. Observed from any direction, the heavy, solid form of the Sierras belies the morphological world which lies all but hidden between the mountain peaks. In order to enter this magical world, it is necessary to climb the steep inclines and delve far and beyond the mountain protagonist. For millions of years, water has penetrated the rocks and chiselled out strange figures and formations like some crazed sculptor at work.
