Jose, the owner of Bar La Ermita is, quite frankly, a really nice guy. He is also the person to talk to if you are interested in climbing in the area as this is also the local base for the “Peña de Escaladores” – The local climbing club. if you need to ask questions about climbing then this is the place to stop off for a beer and a tapas or three…

On weekends and holidays there is a barbecue going and the meats that come off it are delicious. Usual “venta” food which is good quality and not expensive.

Jose also has accommodation to rent (ask him for dates available but at 13 euros per night per person you can’t really go wrong.) and during the months from May to September the swimming pool is also open. Although not a lot of English spoken here, Jose has his trusty (and well thumbed) dictionary at hand and is very happy to help people out during their visit to the Camino del Rey and surrounding areas.

Located on the MA444 Just a couple of Kilometers from the village of El Chorro on the way towards the Conde de Guadalhorce reservoir
