In 1901 it became obvious that workers at the hydroelectric power plants at Chorro Falls and Gaitanejo Falls needed a walkway to cross between the falls, to provide for transport of materials, and for the inspection and maintenance of the channel.  Construction of the walkway took four years and it was finished in 1905. In 1921 King Alfonso XIII crossed the walkway for the inauguration of the dam Conde del Guadalhorce and it became known by its present name.  The walkway has now gone many years without maintenance, and is in a highly deteriorated and dangerous state.  It is one meter (3 feet and 3 inches) in width, and is over 100 meters (350 feet) above the river.  The local government has now closed the entrances, but many adventurous tourists still find their way onto the walkway to explore it.  Also see the original 2008 video.   Music: Michael Darius - 'Magic of Politics'
