“Great views...worth a visit if staying on the Costa del Sol”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Well the previous reviews are accurate. The site is a humbling experience, Be careful when visiting after rain the previous day. The paths were very slippery and muddy. No fee to enter and small museum in the visitor center.

“Weird place but unique and very interesting”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Great food, service and staff with an open aspect but the terrain will be awkward for people with mobility issues.

“Great places with great views!”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

This place was awesome, rocks of all shapes and sizes everywhere! Some rocks slopping and looked like they were about to fall over the edge. good informative history of how they were once under the sea and emerged some years ago, what a great place to visit. The cafe was closed sadly but it was 3.30pm on Christmas Eve and the spanish people tend to have their man christmas celebrations on Christmas Eve, so understandable. Would highly recommend this place as a must see!

“Amazing landscape - do not miss!!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

All the reviews focus on the amazing scenery of El Torcal and it is a place you have to visit to truly appreciate. There are 2 signposted routes through the rocks - 1 hour and 2 hours long (max). The amazing 'karst' landscape formed by the erosion of the limestone rock is a truly fascinating area to explore. Situated close to Antequera and an easy drive up from Malaga, this is well worth a visit. The visitor centre is excellent with plenty of information, very helpful staff, a shop, a cafe and toilets. Fantastic views are to be had of the surrounding area - you can see for miles.
Highly recommended
