In the Parque Verano Azul of Nerja, you will find an exact replica of the boat of this famous character. Many tourists decide to come to this place just to take a picture with it.

Ruta Los Cahorros

The full Sierra de Almijara is the most privileged area of ​​the Dehesa and Pinar del Río Chillar: the Cahorros, a stunning gorge that runs along the riverbed. You have to wear shoes suitable for water (sneakers with good grip, since the bed slips) and warm clothes if the route is not done in summer (time in which it is recommended although any time is good once we get used to it at water temperature). The food must be made on the way, in the area of ​​the dam.

To get to it, we will have to go to Nerja and then to the river Chillar to the SALTO GRANDE, which we reached by the forest lane that surrounds the electrical substation of Sevillana, where the car is left and the journey begins on foot. At that point we will see a FACTORY OF LIGHT moved by the river water through a canal built in the twenties of last century by the defunct Electric Company of Vélez-Málaga.

The route to the beginning of the gorge is surrounded by very unique native vegetation. Once inside the gorge, excavated by erosion, an appropriate footwear is essential to walk through the water. On the way the visitor will encounter the LAKE OF LOS PATOS, a natural raft of water formed at the foot of a small waterfall that, in summer, is often used as a bathing place.
