We visited as a family of seven plus grandmother. We all walked to the lookout post near the visitor centre then grandma sat outside the cafe while the rest of us followed the shorter marked circular route. Our boys aged 2 to 15 loved the walk. The rock formations were amazing and we caught sight of a family of ibex... More

Just WOW ... the view from the top of this place is insane, the drive up on the road is an emotional rollercoaster in itself but when you finally reach the top it is breathtaking! Hard to believe that this place was once underwater ...

An amazing place to visit. It. Is a little difficult to find if you are coming from the north due to the fact you will have to traverse Antiquerra and cope with the vagaries of Spanish signage. But when you do arrive it is spectacular. There are two walking routes, green short yellow long. If you are reasonably fit you... More

This is not the easiest of walks and the place is quite hard to get to, but you get the following: silence and nature. If you're looking for awesomeness - go for this!

Torcal reminded me of Bryce Canyon in Utah. It's a truly beautiful place with fascinating rock formations. And you can visit for free but it is out of the way.

Didn't know what to expect when we got there. The park is massive, you can buy maps to show you routes to walk. This park is amazing. Is not to difficult to walk (I was three months pregnant at the time) but take water and a hat with you. Some of the parts are quite steep and rocky but the... More

An amazing place to visit. How the rock formations stay in place at such angles is beyond belief. Like a lot of Spain 's sites it is free to view, but superbly maintained. Don't make the mistake we made and arrive mid afternoon in July, it gets extremely hot. I would suggest an early is morning about 10ish would be... More

From the main viewing platform by the car park I had just a 40 min stay , but saw 16 GRIFFON VULTURES , 8 GOLDEN EAGLES and 1 BOOTED EAGLE, flying on the thermals only about 100 feet... More

Totally worth a visit! Take one day for this park and Antequera's cromeleques. I did the green "sendero" wich is perfect for those that bring children. My child LOVED the place, because they were just exploring and running freely. THE VISIT FOR THIS NATURAL PARK IS FREE! You pay only the guided tours
