El Caminito del Rey
El Caminito del Rey is a boardwalk on the bluffs of Gaitanes Gorge. It was built in 1905 for flood control construction and became known as the "King's Little Path" after King Alfonso XIII passed through it in 1921 during the completion ceremony of the dam Conde del Guadalhorce. Known for many years as a dangerous walking trail, it was reconstructed in 2015 and is now a popular hiking trail for tourists with spectacular views of the valley.
