The famous Caminito del Rey - named after King Alphonse XIII, who inaugurated it in 1921 - was reopened to the public in 2015. This almost 8km-long take in some of the region's loveliest countryside and goes through tunnels and over a 3km footbridge, which, in some places, spans a 100m drop... and is only 1m wide! At the end you cross a rope bridge suspended over the void. Those with a fear of heights, take note!
