Today we are going on an excursion to Caminito del Rey.
El Caminito del Rey was born out of necessity during the construction of the Córdoba-Málaga railway.
The engineer Rafael Benjumea Burín was the one who took the reins of this project.
In 1921 the monarch Alfonso XIII attended the inauguration of the Conde del Guadalhorce reservoir in the area, for the laying of the last stone of the El Chorro dam.Find out more on our blog
