El Caminito del Rey Zip Line

The remains of a zip line that 3 young Spanish men, Antonio (Picholo), Andres (Moro), and Martin (Loco) used on August 11th, 2000. The wire was embedded in the rock wall opposite near the railway track. The three men jumped on the cable for greater speed but the wire detached from the rock wall and the men fell to their deaths. The Caminito del Rey was closed after this. You can find out more about the walk here.

A rather sombre reminder of the dangers here.

Abandoned Family Home in El Chorro National Park

Abandoned Family Home in El Chorro National Park

As seen from El Caminito del Ray Our guide explained that a family lived here for many generations until after work stopped on a nearby power plants. The property was occupied long before power plant workers were seen in the valley and while they were there they made life easier for the people living here. The house is very far from the nearest village and the occupants subsisted on farming until they started trading with workers.
Apparently workers stopped walking El Caminito del Ray in the 1970s(?) and life became more difficult for the people living there. Within a generation or two the building was abandoned.

Some of the final moments of the 1965 movie, Von Ryan’s Express, were shot near here on the railway behind this house.
