Many things makes the province of Malaga one of the best places to life in the world (as I read not long ago in one american important magazine)
- Its weather: their mountains protect it of cold winds of the north of Europe
- the form of life
- healthy and high cuality food
- in a point of the world where you can find security, good medical services, ...
- Because its situation
- aprox. one hour of Snow of Sierra Nevada
- aprox. two hours away from the only desert of Europe
- aprox. two hours from the most raining point of Spain
- aprox. two hours the winding Tarifa, for windy sports

- very near from so important historical cities like Granada (with
the most important arabic monument), Cordoba, Sevilla.

this all things was mentioned in the magazine... I could tell
many others :)) For example, its nice people, wonderful women :))

Impressive El Chorro

At Alora, in the province of Malaga you will find Malaga's "Lake District" is in fact three artificial lakes created by a dam built across the dramatic 200 m. high Guadalhorce river gorge, known as the Garganta del Chorro. Watch out for the eagles which continually circle around the sheer cliffs.
The Desfiladero de los Gaitanes in El Chorro is one of the most impressive sights in all of Andaluc?a, while the lakes further on have been favourably compared to many famous lakes all over the world. In El Chorro too one can see the famous Caminito del Rey, the King?s Way, formerly used to cross this huge rock-face.
The dam was officially opened in 1921 by King Alfonso XIII of Spain and on this occasion he took a walk along the specially constructed catwalk pinned to the face of the gorge some 100 m. above the river.
It is no longer possible to walk along the "Camino del Rey" (The King's Path), as it has been closed, pending repairs. As you can see in the pic the actualy conditions ...
