Drove there wondering if worth the trip but the scenery there & leaving there was spectacular. However the view from the top was breathtaking!

While we... More

I've lived in Seville, Spain for 8 years now and I can honestly say this is one of the best things I have done in Andalucia. El Torcal is stunning - perfect for families as there are several paths you can take depending on how far you want to walk. We were lucky with the weather and it made it... More

Amazing rock formations to look at & very pleasant walk with teens. Though it was sunny, the weather can be changeable and paths a bit hard for some. So come prepared.

It had been years since las time I've visited. Definitely the drive to get here, only drawback is you might not be able to drive to the visitor center at the top. The views are amazing, the rock formations are quite a site, I definitely recommend visiting if you are in the area.
