Alhambra, Mezquita, take some time out for superb nature scenery. Interesting, beautiful and excellently sign posted. Don't miss it.

Poorly signed but either to or from Villanueva del Rosario and then follow the odd sign easy access with a large barrier when closed. The views and history along with good information boards make this a really good visit with views of the Med and beyond, the limestone has been formed over a millennia with many interesting formations. The cafe at the top is not as expensive as one would imagine and has a small shop as well.
Well worth a visit but please be aware of the sun and wind that will burn skin very quickly

If you're in this area, don't miss these incredible rock formations. Go early to avoid the bus loads of school kids.

The rock formations here are like nothing I've seen before, it's almost like a set from "The Flintstones"

The landscape in this nature park is amazing, a one hour drive from Malaga. There are two official trails from the vistor center, the "ruta verde" and the "ruta amarillo". The first takes about one hour and the second about two hours.

The visitor center is located in the middle of the nature park and has a rather small car park. It consists of an exhibition room, a shop and a cafetaria. The two trails start here and there is a mirador. The cafetaria serves "hamburguesas" made of pork ham.

We are not experienced hikers and we took the short trail "ruta verde" with two children 6 and 9 years old. The landscape during the trail was extremely beautiful, but the trail itself was not easy. Some parts were very slippery and you had to climb from one slippery stone to another slippery stone. My urban walkingshoes were inadequate, you really need hiking boots or sturdy athletic shoes.
