Here you will find three beautiful turquoise coloured lakes bordered by pine forests. A tranquil retreat where you can swim or fish, or picnic on the lake shore. Hardly sounds like a typical Andalucian scene, does it! But just a short drive west of Alora you will find Malaga 's " Lake District " is in fact three artificial lakes created by a dam built across the dramatic 200 m. high Guadalhorce river gorge, known as the Garganta del Chorro. Here there are eagles which continually circle around the sheer cliffs. Property here is scarce because of the Natural Park Classification it has received, Estate Agents continually scour the district for properties to sell.
