A famous climb from Malaga to Fuente de la Reina and Puerto del Leon is appreciated by every cyclist. It is an almost 16km of ascent with 3 parts of 12% of gradient.
You have to follow the street Calle Victoria then Cristo de la Epidemia and then you will follow the signs Camino Colmenar. You are on the A-7000 road to Puerto del Leon.
