El Cotillo

El Cotillo’s Best Kept Secret – The Labyrinth

Although I had heard of the Labyrinth just outside El Cotillo before, incredibly after 12 years or more of visiting (and living in) El Cotillo I had never been to it.

A few weeks ago I went with a friend who knew where it was. It was an overcast and windy day, but that didn’t matter.

To find it head to the windmill near El Roque and take the road near it towards the hills. Keep going straight until you come to a halt by La Maxada (Brian’s stone wall place) and then take the path next to it until you get to the labyrinth.

The Labyrinth was built by a German musician, Wolf Patton, in 1999. It took him two months to complete on his own. Following the labyrinth path to the centre is 3 km apparently.

It is modelled on the labyrinth patterns in Chartres Cathedral in France.

It seems labyrinth’s have all sorts of “spiritual” properties – but anyone that knows me knows what I think of that kind of thing. But it is an interesting feature with some great views so definitely worth going to see.
