  • Casares residents and visitors will soon be able to see the old part of town from a bird’s eye view thanks to a new high speed zipwire

Recently Casares residents were asked by the council if they would like to see an overhead zipwire installed in the town, and after the majority voted in favour, work has started on its construction.

According to Casares councillor for Tourism, Rocío Ruiz, all the materials necessary for the installation will be acquired within the next two weeks. Furthermore, various technicians have already taken the necessary measurements to ensure that the 300-metre-long wire, which is costing approximately 32,000 euros, will be up and running for residents and tourists alike by June.

The zipwire will begin at Paseo Panorámico del Chaparral in Puerto de la Cruz, and will stop in the Las Peñuelas at the end of Calle Molinos.

Councillor Ruiz has assured that the zipwire will be installed by a company that has already had a great deal of experience as it was responsible for the construction of the longest zipwire in Spain that crosses the border between Extremadura and Portugal, as well as others in Comares and Toledo.
