Got here early - around 10am - and did the green walk with two young children and plenty of water. They loved it.Bits are gentle scrambling rather than walking, but good trainers Ok if dry. Views (even from the car park view point) spectacular.

If you want to see amazing rock formations, go there. But if you intend to go for a walk, be aware: the trail is not always easy.

Really nice natural park with impressive rock formations, the short circular trail from the visitor center makes for a nice walk. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

We drove up here to have a look and were unprepared for the views and the amazing rock formations. We happened upon a walking trail so without having seen a map we didn't know where we were going. Turns out we were doing the walk...More

The scenery here comprises spectacular karsted limestone; a kind of limestone answer to Bryce Canyon in Utah. The rock formations make up all sorts of fantastic shapes. In spring, the wildflowers are amazing. There are two coloured walking routes which are clearly marked but which...More

One of the most unique and jaw-dropping locations I've ever seen. It reminded me of a sci-fi movie (or Frodo and Sam's approach to Mordor). The drive up to El Torcal was a little windy and precarious but 100% worth it. To add to the...More

Hi I don't remember any guided tours being available. The track that we took was very well marked (and busy) so I don't think you need a guide. Hope you go and enjoy this park . I thought it was magical
