      El Chorro es una aldea perteneciente al municipio de Álora, cerca de la comarca del Valle del Guadalhorce, situada al lado de un embalse sobre el río Guadalhorce, cerca de Ardales en la provincia de Málaga, España. Es uno de los principales centros de escalada sobre roca de Europa debido a estar situado junto al Desfiladero de los Gaitanes. Al filo de este desfiladero se encuentra el Caminito del Rey, conocido por su peligrosidad y que fue clausurado en el año 2000 debido a la multitud de accidentes entre los excursionistas. Hay una estación de tren en la aldea que conecta con Málaga y Sevilla.
