  • The car park is part of the measures being adopted to prevent contagion when the attraction reopens

Álora town hall is preparing to set up a 6,000-square-metre car park for visitors to the Caminito del Rey as the attraction prepares to potentially reopen on 29 May.

Arriving by private vehicle or train will be encouraged, with further plans to add an extra Cercanías stop at El Chorro to facilitate the arrival of visitors.

The car park, which has already been given the green light, will be located in El Chorro and is part of the measures being studied for the reopening of the Caminito del Rey in order to prevent contagion.

The Diputación provincial government hopes to reopen the daredevil walkway as part of its plan to give a kickstart to local tourism. It hopes that tickets will go on sale imminently for the end of May and the rest of June, albeit only from Friday to Sunday and with a daily limit of 550 visitors to ensure visitor safety.
