The village is located beside the dam of The Conde de Guadalhorce
Reservoir which was founded to cater accomodation for the
workers who built the dam, who gained access to it via El
Caminito del Rey road. Its scenic beauty and its excellent
rural holiday facilities, including camping sites, restaurants
, bars, and accomodation, have turned it into a tourist
attraction - it has been declared a Beauty Spot - .
