About an hours drive North of Malaga is this fascinating outcrop of karst limestone rocks. It’s a really odd looking landscape because the elements have eroded the rock into strange, surreal even, shapes. Sometimes the strata appear as pancake rocks where the layers have eroded...More

If you want to combine a healthy hike with amazing views, this is the visit to take. The trail is fairly flat, but winds through the rocks (wear shoes with thick soles). You can choose between 1,5 or 2+ hour versions. The view from the...More
