Royal trail in Spain celebrates anniversary


«Royal road» in Spain, considered the most difficult tourist trail in the country, celebrates the first anniversary of his work as a tourist object — on March 29, 2015 it was first opened to the public.

«Royal road» was opened last year after a long period of reconstruction, during which the auxiliary path for the workers who built the dam Conde del Guadalhorce, it has evolved into a unique entertainment for fans of adrenaline-fuelled holiday. Its name it owes  Spanish king Alfonso XIII, which took place on consisting of concrete, driven into the rock rails and crutches, building construction, to attend the opening ceremony of the dam.

The attraction is located in the Malaga province of Spain, in the gorge of El Chorro between the waterfalls. The trail is considered very dangerous because located at high altitude above the ground (100 meters), its width is only 1 meter and the length — about three miles.

In the year since the opening of the tourist route, it was visited by more than 300 thousand tourists, and the income of the region from the “Royal trails” amounted to more than €40 million, and the new tourist pearl of Spain continues to gain popularity.

As reported by the authorities of the region, next year the entrance to the "Royal path" will be paid (around €8 - €10), and there will be restrictions on the number of visits to tourist sites. Now daily walk on the famous trail can not exceed 1,100 — thus the organizers hope to keep the existing level, avoiding excessive number of tourists.
