The station is in an area of San Roque called 'Estacion de San Roque' near the river Guadarranque and by the A-405 road that links Gaucin with the A-7 coast road.  The district of San Roque was founded after the station was opened in 1909 and the initial inhabitants mainly came from the villages of the Serrania de Ronda served by the railway line.

There are three/four return medium-distance trains stopping at local stations to Ronda and terminating at Antequera Santa Ana with connections to Granada, Seville, Cordoba, Madrid and Malaga.

The station was added to the line in 1909. The original stone 'Henderson' station building sits on platform near the modern brick building. When the café closed and the hunting club left the premises in the late 2000s it was in a very poor state of repair. The building had been plasetered and painted white at some point and door trim was blue-grey, not the Andalucian yellow as other in many other station buildings on the line. The historic building was commpletely restored in 2021. The exterior plaster was removed and the building sand blasted to returned it to its original stonework.

Original 19th-century Linley & Co of Birmingham Improved Platform Lamp iron brackets can be seen on the wall.  The cast-iron supports for the wooden canopy remain.
