A brief introduction of what not long ago was considered one of the most dangerous and spectacular paths of the world.
Before the reconstruction, the Caminito del Rey was considered one the most dangerous paths of the world. Built in between 1901 and 1905, together with the construction of the railway and as an acces route to the dams unveiled by king Alfonso XIII in 1921. It proceeds to the walls of the Desfiladero de Los Gaitanes, a spectacular canyon formed by the stream of the Guadalhorce river. The hanging bridge of the path is 105 metres above the ground beneith , thus it's not reccomended for people that are afraid of heights.
The construction of the highway made it so the Caminito's maintenance got left abandoned and so, some parts of the trail collapsed. Even though it was a risky route, many people, especially climbers dared to go through the path to enjoy it's beautifull environment. Unfortunately, due to the bad condition the path was in, it has taken a few lives over the course of it's existence, and thus leading to the closing of the Caminito.
Many people called for it's restauration, since the path has a gorgeous environment. After some time of planning and reconstructing, paying a lot of attention not to harm the environment, the Caminito del Rey opened to the public in March 2015. It resulted in a huge success and it quickly became a place where many tourists are atracted to.
