A walkway between Alora, Antequera and Ardales in Malaga, Spain, El Caminito del Rey – the King’s Path – is a three-kilometre long pathway that hugs the side of the mountains and crosses bridges, a hundred metres above ground. It is about a metre wide. It is named after King Alfonso VIII who visited the area in 1921. It was closed in 2001 for safety reasons, and refurbished and reopened in 2015.

The King's Path is a unique walkway in Spain but not one to attempt if you are scared of heights.

It is 3km (1.9 miles) long, 100 metres (328 feet) high and just one metre wide.

The King's Path (El Caminito del Rey) in Malaga was closed in 2001 for safety reasons but re-opened in 2015 after a massive restoration project. New fencing keeps walkers safe as they cross a narrow gorge with a sheer drop to the river below.
