El Caminito del Rey

Probably the most exciting news so far for tourism in Spain in 2015 is the re-opening of El Caminito del Rey. Sadly, The King’s Pathway which had opened in 1921 had fallen into disrepair and it was necessary to close the path to the general public. See video above. Eventually, funding was received and after much incredible civil engineering, it reopened in March 2015.

No tour of Spain would be complete without at least an overview of the project. I am delighted that the Sur group have produced a massive guide which gives complete information to every aspect of the history and the future for El Caminito del Rey. So, no host today. Rather I offer you their online guide.
