    The Gaitanes Gorge is a gorge in the center of the province, crossed by the Guadalhorce River. Its northern access is at the Guadalhorce reservoir and its southern access at El Chorro.

    A water canal was built from the northern reservoir to El Chorro, with a maintenance road alongside it.

    After reaching the Conde de Guadalhorce Dam, the most important water reservoir in the province of Malaga.
