On the summit, the Cable Car has a complete range of leisure ideas such as falconry displays where you can enjoy the spectacular flights of birds of prey in unspoiled nature, with species such as the peregrine falcon, golden eagle, eagle owl and griffon vulture. The summit also offers different perfectly marked walking routes and strategic viewpoints for taking in the most spectacular landscapes of the Costa del Sol, the Sierra Nevada and, on clear days, Gibraltar and the coast of Africa. The walk also offers you a broad representation of the botanical wealth of this typical Mediterranean landscape, with species of great ecological interest such as sideritis, rockrose, thyme, lily, apple mint and marjoram. less
