Do the trains between Malaga and Alora run through the winter? I will be travelling on the 26th Dec.

yep pretty much 2-3 times a day at least...check the spanish train website for timetables. From the airport go to Malaga central station then get a little train to El Chorro. The only problem is that some might terminate at Alora leaving you stuck 20km from El Chorro late at night.

In reply to ck85: There are only three ot four trains a day from Malaga to El Chorro, but don't bank onj them running over Christmas, even if they are scheduled. This site may help;

Enjoy, hope you get good weather. I will be out there mid January.
Don't forget that as well as the Rockfax guide there is also a local produced one available in the climbing shop in El Chorro which lists some other routes, including some multipitch stuff and aid.

I don't know whether it affects the trains but Xmas is not the same here. Xmas day is a church service and family day, most places will be shut. Boxing day is back to work until 3 King's Day on the 6th of Jan which is when pressies and stuff are given out.

So there is a better chance of trains running on 26th here but i am promising nothing - neither am i promising that the timetables you find will be correct, valid or in anyway useful ;0)
