Caminito del Rey closed until further notice

A visit to the Caminito del Rey on Saturday the 15th of May 2021 was a bit dismal to be honest and today I note that on the official website the “Caminito del Rey is closed until further notice”

I can’t get anyone to answer the phone and they aren’t responding to messages on their social networks.

The lamentable state of the “Interpretation centre” that has never been opened also drew my negative attention. Such a shame. The enormous car park goes unused whilst many people are forced to park illegally along the side of the road close the the kiosko bar making the road dangerous to all.

Of course I would recommend the Caminito del Rey but the organisation of this site has been terrible of late. Surely they must have some idea as to when tickets will be available again and could very easily publish this across the social networks and website.

Oh! and to top it all I was informed by the hotel Posada del Conde that their bar and restaurant was closed untill further notice or at least until September!

Lets hope things improve soon!
