It’s just been announced that the steel cable running the length of the Caminito de Rey will be left in place once the walkway is re-opened. Right now it’s being used as a security measure for the people working on the renovation. The decision to keep the cable was made in order to give an option for people who aren’t so sure of their head for heights to feel a bit safer. Wearing a harness and attaching on to the cable will at least stop a person from leaning over the barrier and falling into the river below 🙂
Other news, it seems that the entry price for the Caminito del Rey will be set at 6 euros per person but as yet this is still a rumor… Getting information from the authorities here is very difficult!
