We really enjoyed our visit to this beautiful natural park. We did the longer loop with our boys, 8 and 11. It was very quiet, moderately strenuous due to some hills and uneven terrain but no problem for the kids. It's amazing that this is...More

Beautiful panoramic views from up there, with marvelous naturally carved stone sculptures. There is a visitor center with a cafe, wheel chair accessible for those not choosing to relax instead of taking the challenging rocky trail behind it (about 1hr). This nature spectacle is well...More

Visited similar Karst formations globally & this is acceptable which is more than I can say for the access road. Large parts require safety barriers. Strangely it's better coming down than going up even though you are on the drop off side. The staff in...More

We did the easy walk (about an hour) , following the trail was quite easy. Passable without special walking boots or equpment. Well worth a visit. The views are amazing. Birds of prey fly freely above and wild goats climb then rocks below.

Had a lovely couple of hours enjoying the views & a beautiful walk through the most amazing geology. Unfortunately we followed some very loud people on our walk but that didn’t take away the beauty of this place. Highly recommend

It is a narrow, twisting road into the park. Maybe not a good idea.

It is not easy, but it can be done. Taxi from Antiquera is 23 euros one way. There are also tour groups that can be arranged from Antiquera (Sendero Sur is one such agency).
