UNESCO´s Nomination Proposal: El Caminito del Rey Path and its surroundings
We want to present the nomination of El Caminito del Rey Path (the King's Little Pathway) and its surroundings for the inclusion on the UNESCO's World Heritage List. The proposal is based on seven monuments, placed along less than 20 kilometres, which are part of our history and you will surely love them.
The Natural Beauty Spot Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, El Chorro or the Count of Guadalhorce's Reservoir and Gaitanejo Dam, the walkways over the waterfall in the hydroelectric power complex El Chorro, El Chorro Train Station and the bridges over the Gaitanes Gorge, as well as the Palaeolithic Cave in Ardales and Las Aguilillas Necropolis or the Bobastro Mozarabic cave country chapel have stood in this area for centuries and witnessed the human presence since the Palaeolithic. The unique natural surroundings have allowed the industrial development of the area and gave us places such as the path and dramatic scenery, which can be considered as one of the most beautiful in the whole world.
