Crystal-clear and exceptionally cold water rushes out of the mountainside and into a natural lagoon.

A fantastic spot for a picnic and/or to cool off after a morning’s sightseeing in the Serrania de Ronda.

Take the road from Ronda to Benaoján and look for a parking area on the right. There’s a small sign for the hotel/restaurant Cueva del Gato to help you locate it.

Park at the top and walk down the concrete road to the hotel. Cross the wooden footbridge (in need of repair) over the river, and then under the railway bridge.

If you head up to the mouth of the cave be careful – the stone steps can be slippery and there is no handrail. It is forbidden to venture into the cave.

Small parking charge to access the beautiful swimming lagoon that is fed by ‘refreshing’ cold water from the Cueva del Gato
