The Cueva del Gato cave, a beauty spot in Benaoján, in the mountains of the Serranía de Ronda, has a new pedestrian access bridge over the river Guadiaro. The original bridge was damaged during storms almost eight years ago, making it difficult to reach the cave which is well known for its rock formations and cave paintings, and was once a popular local attraction.

The Diputación provincial authority has spent 200,000 euros on the new link and now plans a nearby visitor centre.
