King's Walkway

Local nameCaminito del Rey
LocationAntequera, Spain

El Caminito del Rey is a walkway, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Ardales in the province of Málaga, Spain. The name derives from the original name of Camino del Rey, abbreviated locally to el caminito. The walkway had fallen into disrepair and was partially closed for over a decade. After four years of extensive repairs and renovations, the walkway re-opened in 2015.

It has been known in the past as the "world's most dangerous walkway" following five deaths in 1999 and 2000.
