The rocks in the park are really unusual and very interesting. The flora along the paths are very attractive and different too. There are three walks of different lengths and time. Some parts can be difficult and slippery. Go there with proper hiking shoes. You...More

Took a wrong road to Malaga so had to wind our way back through the hills which was an experience. A nice one. El Torcal is an amazing place. Well worth a visit.

We spent a fantastic morning in El Torcal. Despite of being August, the day was not that nice, so we decided to make the short route (also our shoes were not optimal for this place). It took us around 90 minutes to complete this track...More

Although a long drive to the top it was certainly worthwhile. The views were spectacular. Also a small restaurant/café and car parking.

Unbelievable rock formations created by the wind and rain. Many wild flowers plus Ibex and birds of prey. Good visitors centre and cafe/restaurant

We visited El Torcal at the end of May 2017 on what started out as a bit of a dull cloudy day. The closer we got to El Torcal the worse it got and as we were driving up the final road towards the visitor...More

You will not be able to get a wheelchair around the paths. Only to the restaurant/shop an maybe to the viewpoint which is about 100m from the car park
I stay in Alora. How do I get to Antequera? I think the only solution is taking an expensive taxi. And then , how do I get from the El Torcal park to the Dolmen? And later I have to take the train in Santa Ana Antequera, how far is that from the park or Dolmen? And is there a bus or is it possible by foot? I'm searching on the internet for days now, and can't find answers to these questions. Can you help me? or give me an idea? THX
