Los Riscos Interpretation Centre
Los Riscos from Cartajima is a great torcal, of sedimentary origin, composed of limestone (limestone rock composed primarily of calcium carbonate) that look ruiniform due to erosion that produce the weather. Due to the ruiniform appearance, rocks with many shapes created naturally can be found.
Los Riscos are located within the Sierra del Oreganal in the region of the Serrania de Ronda, about 1,400 metres above sea level in the western territory of the province of Malaga. In the geographical area, delimited to the north by the Plateau de Ronda, on the east by the Sierra de las Nieves, Sierra Bermeja on the south and west by the Guadiaro Valley.
To learn more about this natural wonder, the Development Plan for Tourism in the Serranía de Ronda (PDSR) has funded a Centre that is located in a building owned by the municipality that the City Hall has conditioning for that purpose. It is situated at the entrance of the village, next to a new square-viewpoint. It has four rooms: an information desk, storage are, meeting room, and an exhibition hall about biodiversity.
