Natural Sites in the Province of Málaga

CAMINITO DEL REY

El Caminito del Rey, located in one of the most beautiful natural landscapes of Málaga, El Chorro, has ceased to be one of the “most dangerous routes in the world” after 25 years of neglect, thanks to a sustainable restoration project that improves the protection of the visitor and integrates itself into the environment while maintaining the emotion of vertigo.

Come and visit it while staying at Posada Los Cántaros, just 30 km away by car.

TORCAL DE ANTEQUERA

The Torcal de Antequera is a unique natural site, declared as a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

One of the most interesting destinations in Andalusia, which will not leave you indifferent.

No matter how old you are or what your tastes are: surely your visit to the Torcal will have been worthwhile and you will want to return, because a single day is not enough to enjoy all the wonders that this incredible place contains.

LAGUNA DE FUENTE DE PIEDRA

The Laguna de Fuente de Piedra is a nature reserve located in the municipality of Fuente de Piedra, northwest of the province of Malaga.

It is the largest in Andalusia and offers a privileged environment for the reproduction of pink flamingos, as well as being a wintering area and the passage of many other birds. The nesting of the flamingo is the most enriching phenomenon of the annual cycle of this lagoon.

In the nature reserve they carry out, among other activities, guided visits to get to know the lagoon, its history, its flora and its fauna.

THE GAITANES ‘GATE 

Its impressive vertical natural walls, which reach 300 m in height, and its narrow width that barely exceeds 10 m most of the time, make the Natural Park Los Gaitanes Gorge, also known as Garganta del Chorro, one of the most spectacular landscapes of the Malaga mountain range.

It is surprising with its more than 3 kilometres in length, which divides the space into two halves.

Attached to its high and dizzying walls passes the famous Caminito del Rey.

EL CHORRO NATURAL PARK

Halfway between the Malaga towns of Antequera, Ardales and Álora, is one of the most impressive ecological enclaves in southern Europe: El Chorro Natural Site

The Natural Park of El Chorro is a wonderful place to enjoy contact with nature and rest, but also to perform many multi-adventure activities, because in the area, in addition to being one of the European climbing paradises, it allows the practice of canyoning , trekking, canoeing, free flight …

Undoubtedly, an essential place in the path of any avid traveller who seeks to get lost to be able to find themselves.

SIERRA DE LAS NIEVES

The Sierra de las Nieves natural park, catalogued as a Biosphere Reserve, is located in the province of Malaga and is worth visiting if you like nature.

It has a great diversity of animal and plant species, highlighting its pinsapares and quejigals (pinsapos and gall oak forests, both protected species).

With the Torrecilla peak (1919 m) as a standard, it will be declared the sixteenth national park of Spain in 2018.

CAVE OF THE TREASURE  (RINCÓN DE LA VICTORIA)

Rincón de la Victoria has one of the only three caves of marine origin known in the world: the only one of these characteristics in Europe.

It is formed by underwater galleries that, once emerged above sea level, they were decorated with stalactites and stalagmites, typical of terrestrial caves, due to fresh water filtrations.

The cave owes its name to the legend of the existence of a treasure hidden in one of its caves during the Arab period.

CAVES OF THE PILETA AND THE CAT (BENAOJÁN)

The cave of the Pileta is a prehistoric site declared a National Monument (1924) and B.I.C. (1985)

The Cueva de El Gato, located between the Malaga municipalities of Montejaque and Benaoján, is the most important speleological system in Andalusia and one of the largest in Spain, with more than 9000m surveyed.

With permanent water, chasms, lakes, siphons and some danger because the intense rains of the area make the underground channel change very quickly.
