The King’s Path in Spain
El Caminito del Rey - Spanish “King’s Path” is located in the province of Malaga in a unique village El Chorro. And there are several reasons for it, let's describe them one by one.
It is difficult to give a single explanation why it became the main centre of attraction for thousands of travellers. I wonder, what will be the key reason for your visit Spanish gorge El Chorro? A huge limestone canyon, picturesque cliffs, lush vegetation, pine trees, incredibly clean air, turquoise lagoons could drive you crazy and intoxicate your mind.
In the twentieth century, Mountain Rivers served as a base for the creation of reservoirs and, as a consequence, it resulted in the construction of two hydroelectric power stations at the beginning and end of the gorge. For the convenience of the workers of the hydroelectric station, in 1905 a special track was built, made of concrete driven into the rock. In the current view, it was a single-level scaffolding along the cliffs, reinforced by meter wooden poles. Unfortunately, they were not used for the intended purpose for a long time. In contrast, this was a typical case of negligence: the work was commissioned but the installers of the construction left the place without disassembling the auxiliary structures, which became a magnet for the extreme thrill seekers. Risk lovers, indeed, managed to get there, despite the displayed warning signs: the construction is unstable, the entrance is forbidden, or even the elementary no way sign.
