Caminito del Rey
The Caminito del Rey is a series of 2,9-kilometer walkways built in the walls of the Gaitanes gorge—close to the village El Chorro, which belongs to the municipality of Alora. Also, it has 4,8 kilometers of trails and forest tracks to enter/exit the area—with a total duration of 3 to 4 hours to complete de trip.
Natural wonder in Antequera formed by rocks of 150 million years of age. A natural setting where the wind erosion has created incredible shapes on the limestone rock. We find labyrinths, abysses, coves and other underground forms. A magic place and, at the same time, also a total strange one. Maybe this discretion has provided the Torcal de Antequera its charm.
We did talk about the village of Frigiliana when we included it in our list of the 14 charming villages of Spain to get lost, thanks to its narrow streets, of great beauty. Labeled as one of the whitewashed villages of Malaga, is a Historic-Artistic complex since 2014. Its old part of town, in a mint state of preservation, is the Muslim heritage left in this area.
Bioparc of Fuengirola
Fuengirola has in its Bioparc, a little pieace of Madagascar, South-East Asia and Equatorial Africa. This is a zoo park with a recreation of the natural habitat in order to enable the animals’ development and the visitor’s experience. So, both of them immerse between water and vegetation surrounded by baobabs, crocodiles from the Nile River, gorillas or, for instance, the serval, in a rather naturalized and integrating fashion.
Antequera atestigua algunas de las primeras obras arquitectónicas que levantó el hombre en la Edad de Bronce: el Dolmen de la Cueva de Menga, el Dolmen de Viera y el tholos del Romeral, formando el conjunto arqueológico de los Dólmenes de Antequera. Para llegar a ellos, hay que tener en cuenta que el Dolmen de Menga y el de Viera se encuentran en la misma área (en Avda. de Málaga nº 1), y el Dolmen del Romeral más al sur (en Cerro Romeral. Antigua CN-232 con dirección a Córdoba).
