I wondered when the favorite son of Malaga, Antonio Banderas would pay a visit to the Caminito del Rey. Accompanied by his new girldriend, Nicole Kimpel, some friends, the mayor of Malaga and the president of the Malaga diputation they walked some of the newly restored route and Antonio was obviously impressed by the work so far.

The president of the diputation also stated that the works were going to schedule and would be finished by February 2015… However the opening day depends on the availability of the King of Spain, Felipe VI and his obviously busy agenda. Felipe VI has been invited to host the opening as it was his great grandfather that inaugurated the Caminito del “rey” over 100 years ago.. The idea is nice but we’ll have to wait and see if the King actually has the time and the interest to be present.
