El Caminito del Rey is located right next to the sleepy town of El Chorro in Malaga, Spain. Construction of the one meter wide, three kilometers long walkway through El Chorro canyon started in 1901 and were completed in 1905. Rising a 100 meters above the Canyons floor, the path cuts the canyon’s giant limestone cliffs in half with another 75 meters of sheer rock jutting above it. It was originally build to provide access for workers between the hydroelectric power plants in El Chorro Falls.
