Getting to El Chorro
Caminito del Rey is 3 km long and it lies along the
Gaitanes Gorje walls from Ardales through Antequera and ending at El Chorro. It
is located in the province of Malaga.
The path can be accessed by El Chorro, a small village,
which is also one of the main climbing resorts in Europe, due to its proximity
to the Gorge of Gaitanes and also due to its facile access to El Caminito del
El Chorro is located 15 km north, (about 24 min. drive) via Camino del Convento de Flores –
of the town of Álora.
It is only one hour drive away from Malaga, about 64 km North of it, via A-357 and it is
also about 2 hour drive from three important cities: 146 km South of Córdoba (via A-45), 133 km West of Granada
(via A-92) and 161 km South-East of Sevilla (via A-92).
