It's extremely beautiful and where the Caminito Del Rey ends. So at least give this a visit if you don't feel up to the Caminito Del Rey. To get there go from roundabout in Alora town centre on A7077 and keep on this road. 16 km from house https://www.google.es/maps/dir/Calle+Bajondillo,+29500+%C3%81lora,+M%C3%A1laga/El+Chorro/@36.8289101,-4.7069008,15z/data=!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0xd72eaf4f3d4a2c1:0x2709332fa5a84f93!2m2!1d-4.7050685!2d36.8220183!1m5!1m1!1s0xd72be51e80ab039:0x1e5dd94cbef6d970!2m2!1d-4.7596131!2d36.9092139!5i1

If you don't feel like travelling as far as Granada or Cordoba, then Antequera is a very nice day out. The ancient castle there is well worth a visit and Antequera is nice to explore. Well recommended. Personally, I would recommend this more than a day in Ronda, which is overrated. Plaza de los Escribanos, s/n, 29200 Antequera, Málaga http://turismo.antequera.es/place/alcazaba/

Ronda is very popular for a day visit, but I find it overrated. There are so many more places to see.
