Caminito del Rey, a pathway now known worldwide for its beautiful views and past danger, has caught the attention of the giant Google which has digitized the path for its popular application Google Street View.
The application of Google allows the user a panoramic view along a path of preset images. This is something that has already been used in such sights as the pyramids of Egypt or the world’s major cities and which allow the curious observer the feeling of somehow visiting the place.
Without doubt this is good news for those who want to remember or walk this pathway for the first time.
Caminito del Rey (King’s little pathway) is a popular tourist attraction which has recently been refurbished and for which you have to book the visit from their website (http://www.caminitodelrey.info), although it has been very successful and currently there is no availability for the tour.
The tour takes between 4 and 5 hours depending on the pace. It is a linear path so when you reach the end, you have to take a bus for getting to the starting point.
If you still haven´t got your ticket do not worry. The Caminito del Rey is located in a beautiful natural area which you can enjoy without reservation and free of charge. Don’t forget the typical gastronomy of the villages surrounding it.
