“loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

A wonderful trip up to the top of the mountain with fantastic views. Great bird of prey show included in the price and I think there is also a demonstration of Spanish dressage which we didn't hang about for but a great little excursion for a few hours. Not for the faint hearted

“Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Even though I am scared of heights I decided to venture on this attraction. It was slightly overcast but that didn't spoil the view. If you are going to make a morning or afternoon of this take some snacks as food is on the expensive side.


Tip: - Put your ticket in your purse or wallet and not loose in your pocket.

“Amazing views and birds of prey show.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The attraction is well worth the money especially if you can get hold of some money off vouchers. The views are superb and what the bird man can get them things to do is amazing! well worth a visit.

“Just Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We originally took the cable car to hopefully do some walking around the Andalusia hillside, forget it...there is nowhere to go....barren and desolate.
However to our great delight there are simply some stunning sea views from various purposely built viewing platforms.
WARNING... the steps around the hillside are very steep. narrow and rocky in places and definitely not suitable for anyone with walking/ breathing difficulties or children in prams, and I seriously doubt any kind of wheelchair access. wearing flipflops is not advised either.

However the trip up in the cable car is awesome, with spectacular views, but its steep. inclined in places and it does rock about a bit due to the winds and altitude, so be warned.

once up there you could just go for the bird of prey sanctuary/ daily show, or the evening horse show and even the night time star gazing experience....all included in the price. we stayed for the Birds of Prey show, and it was fantastic.

Vultures free soaring on the hot winds, golden eagles chasing fox furs, and peregrine falcons darting between you, not to mention the ones that come sit on your arm. overall a fantastic half day out, but there is no shelter from the searing hot sun during the show which lasts about an hour, so guess what...they do a roaring trade in parasols, there are lots of photo opportunities and audience interaction, the trainers speak good English, and its a real life welfare sanctuary and not just a money making tourist attraction and. at about 12euros each , great value for money.
there is a restaurant/ burger bar and drinks kiosk which I thought was reasonably priced, and toilet facilities also.
highly recommended attraction, please give it a go , beats sitting on the beach anyday,

I hope you have enjoyed reading my review and consider leaving me a helpful vote, and feel free to check out my other reviews
Bye for now, and a stunning stop off on my WORLD DOMINATION TOUR
