Views to die for and great walks among these amazing natural rock formations. Be prepared if doing the walk, proper shoes and take water.

We took the 2 hour walk through the park. It is very impressive and beautifull. The park doesn't charge entrance and they rely on gifts only, do give them something so they can take care of the park.

After a little ride going out of Antequera you will arrive in a scenery made of stones eroded by the wind and the water. Stacked stones with various shapes gives the impression to be on another planet. Environment very special worthed to be seen.

What a surprise only 50km north of Malaga. Fantastic rock formations weathered into towers and sculptures rising above the plain so there are wonderful vistas in all directions. We followed the longer of two waymarked paths through the Park and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Good shoes recommended. Walk not suitable for those with reduced mobility but Visitor Centre has good... More

This place is really great we always take family and visitors for a walk around. The rock formations are stunning and we quite often spot Ibex on at least one of then. Been there in all types of weather and it is very eerie when the cloud is down.

WOW! The wonders of nature really are better than anything that man might attempt to create. El Torcal is the most amazing and beautiful karstic landscape. A wonderland of limestone structures with caves, galleries and alleys. For the able bodied there are two different routes. A gentle route and one for the more energetic and adventurous. The visitor centre is... More

A unique experience. The natural rock features are like nothing else I have ever seen. Take your camera! There are three walks marked out by different coloured paint. Even the shortest of these is a struggle for older folks but they are well worth the effort. I do recommend that you make the effort.
