THE Caminito del Rey is now under the control of a private company. 

The walkway, dubbed the ‘world’s deadliest’, has been sold off by Malaga City Council to construction firm Hermanos Campano.

Forking out €1.6 million, the company will take control of the tourist attraction from April 20 and will be in sole control for the next four years.

The only backer of El Teatro Romano (Malaga’s oldest monument), Hermanos Campano already has experience of running a big tourist attraction in Andalucia.

The price to enter is expected to remain at €10 per adult and €5 for children.

Hotels in Ardales, El Chorro that have been getting free access for their guests will have to start paying from April onwards.
