Cable car to Eagle Valley Another day out - we caught the train to Benalmedena, and then the cable car to the mountain top. There we saw the vultures flying free in eagle Valley, followed by a demonstration by the other birds of prey in the bird sanctuary. Finally we descended eventually, after a frightening experience in the cable car!!!
