The summit of Monte Calamorro is 800 metres above sea level and from there you can gaze down upon the town of Benelmádena, view vast stretches of the Costa del Sol, the Sierra Nevadas and, on a clear day, Gibraltar and the coast of Africa.
The best way to get to the top is on the Teleférico – cable car – which runs from just outside Tivoli World. The panoramas as you trundle up the hill are stunning.
But the experience doesn’t end there.
Once at the summit, there are 2.75 kilometres of clearly marked trails leading to various viewpoints, nothing strenuous.
In the Valley of the Eagles there are daily falconry exhibitions where you can see such birds of prey as Vultures, Golden Eagles, Kites, Falcons and Owls. You will also see these birds flying freely above the mountains.
It is from this breeding centre that, a few years ago, six Red Kites were shipped to South Wales in the UK as part of an attempt to reintroduce these magnificent birds of prey.
There is also an equestrian show each day and both the falconry exhibition and horse show are included in the price of the cable car ticket, which at €13.25 (adults) makes it a bargain.
