History of the Caminito del Rey

  • El Caminito del Rey owes its origin to the Sociedad Hidroeléctrica del Chorro , which required access for professionals who worked in Saltos del Gaitanejo and del Chorro. From 1901 to 1905, the works that created the old route were developed.
  • The beauty offered by the nature of the environment, began to popularize the route, which motivated the chief engineer Rafael Benjumea to improve it, with actions such as the reform of the bridge between the sides of the gorge.
  • The fame of this route led to the visit of King Alfonso XIII in 1921, an event that led to the name of Caminito del Rey.
  • Over the years, the Caminito del Rey deteriorated, making its access and route really dangerous. Several accidents led to the closure in 2001 of the entire route and the demolition of the initial section.
  • Restoration work began in 2014 and concluded in 2015. On March 28, the new Caminito del Rey was inaugurated, fully rehabilitated, with all the security elements that visitors need and maintaining the spectacularity of its views, in each meter of travel .
