How to get here
The most advisable route to Yunquera starts at the city of Málaga. Take the A-357 highway towards Campillos. After about 14 kilometres, you will get to Cártama, and immediately after that village, you must take the A-355 to Coín. From that locality, you must continue by way of the A-366 to Alozaina. (This is the same road as the A-355 but this stretch has a different name.) At Alozaina, continue on the same road to Yunquera.
If you start from Ronda, you should take the A-366 too, but towards Málaga. You will come to El Burgo after about 25 kilometres and to Yunquera 9 kilometres farther along.
