Founded by the Phoenicians during the 7th century B.C., the city is located at the centre of a bay surrounded by mountain systems. Two rivers, the Guadalmedina and the Guadalhorce, run through it, leading in the Mediterranean. Its most remarkable heritage site to visit is the Alcazaba, Cathedral, Gibralfaro castle, the Roman theatre, the historic centre, the Picasso museum and the Contemporary Art Center.
It is worth mentioning a visit to the famous Caminito del Rey. In the centre of the province of Malaga, about 60 km from the capital, delimited by the Ronda and Antequera mountain ranges and separating the plains of the North of the province (Campillos, Teba and Antequera) from the land in the valley of Guadalhorce and campos de Cámara in the south, is a beautiful territory with historical treasures and spectacular landscape.
An area in which villages have prospered throughout history, especially during the last century, developing a flourishing collection of hydraulic infrastructures for obtaining electricity that are connected by a humble service path known as “Caminito del Rey” (the King’s Little Path) that almost impossibly runs through the natural area of the Gaitanes Gorge.
