When we visited, the visitor centre area was crowded and noisy, with large groups of school children running around apparently unsupervised, and the car park was stinking of raw sewage which seemed to have overflowed from the septic tank. Despite this, once we started out...More

The landscape is totally unreal looking. To think the highest peaks were the ocean bottom. You can even find impressions of sea shells and starfish

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).
