The Origins

Its name dates back to 1921, when King Alfonso XIII crossed this path after the inauguration of the Conde de Guadalhorce reservoir. It was then that it began to be called El Caminito del Rey.

In 2014, rehabilitation works began for the regular traffic of visitors. A year later, a 7 km route was opened to the public without any risk to pedestrians.

In the photograph on the left it is possible to see in some sections of the trail the old walkway just below the new one.
