We took a ride on the cable car in the afternoon and it rounded the day off nicely. The staff letting us on and off the cars were friendly. There is a small café at the stop and a couple of walks to higher viewpoints. We reached one within ten minutes but it was a steep climb. Definitely worth it... More

Travelling up to the top of this attraction was a little hairy to begin with,it is quite a long cable car ride, which when you get used to the motion is wonderful. The views from the top are outstanding, and you can walk a little further on your own,to see even more. We were lucky enough to be there when... More

Wow! Worth every penny, takes 15 min time, 2,6km, wow views. When You're there You can climb even higher, see Maalaga, Fuengirola. From 11.00 there is also Falcon-show. There is also a little restaurant up there. What else could You hope for?

Spent a lovely few hours here on a nice sunny day. The views were fantastic and also watched the Falconry show which was very entertaining. It's also possible to take mountain bike up (that's if you can't cycle up) and enjoy an easy cycle down. Small bar/resto and toilets available.

Opens at 11 so don't get there too early. Once started runs continuously, it doesn't stop you hop on as it goes by but it goes slowly so enough time to get on each one takes up to four people. A discount is available to seniors on production of passport, but you can pick up leaflets that have money off... More

We took a ride up the cable car to have a good wander round the little trails and take in the views, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We found a couple of trails across the mountain range that we want to have a go of next time, they looked less travelled, quiet and exciting. The downside of the top was the... More

A great day than you see all the way to Africa but when we were there it was a bit cloudy. The view was really cool! A BIG diasppointment was they have birds, like hawks, in small cages/shell with metalroof. In the warm summerdays, imagne the heat in there..

The cable car ride itself is great, then the views when you reach the top are fantastic, but add to this the Bird show and you have a fantastic few hours entertainment. We arrived in time for the 1pm show, I would have been disappointed had I missed it so plan your visit to arrive around 12.30, get your bearings,... More

After coming here for years we eventually went on the cable cars. Well worth the trip up for the views.
