First place on the earth where I have been higher than where eagles fly! Makes you feel very tiny. The view from the top is amazing, and the air feels purer that ever. Felt quite good after the heath wave down in Costa del sol. Good roadtrip too, much to see!

We really enjoyed the park and were amazed by the rock formations. The boys liked driving in the clouds. We went early in the morning and it was very peaceful.

Breath-taking views and stunning landscapes is what awaits you! I hiked the yellow path, which took about 1,5 hours and probably is 3-4 km. Remember to bring footwear fitting the occasion, the paths and surroundings are rocky and steep.

... and wear hiking boots. After your long arduous drive up to the top of the mountain, you can simply walk to observation decks and gaze on the unusual array of formations.... Or [after all your effort to arrive] you can get out into it all ! This is a very unique geological and topographic experience, to put it mildly,... More

Breathtaking rock mountain! Wear good hiking shoes. If you are lucky enough to be almost alone, you will get the full impact of majestic nature. Take your time, enjoy the experience.

Great hiking excursion, with just a little challenge; it is NOT a flat clear path. Path is marked although some times is a leap of faith. There is a certain degree of sorting boulders up and down, muddy sometimes. We did this with my 4 and 5 year old and they had a grand time. The easy circuit took us... More

El Torcal is a stunning place to spend a few hours walking. There are various routes of different length to choose from. Although it can be a bit busy and noisy with all the tourists on the easy route, the views are definitely worth it. The paths are being a bit rough, so bring proper shoes. It is a must-see!

Very much recommended free activity El Torcal has several hikes for all likes, they also have a tourist office and a restaurant on site. Be sure to take some water as well as visiting outside of the hot season. The drive there is a little complicated so take a GPS unless you know the area as the signage is ok... More
