Antequera is situated in the Andalusia region in the south of Spain. This charming destination makes a popular day-trip from Malaga, but will reward visitors who spend a few more days with its rich collection of cultural sights and natural attractions. The town’s most striking characteristic is its preponderance of Spanish Baroque architecture – boasting more than 30 churches, many of which have highly decorative interiors. For a trip further back into Antequera’s history, visit its two Bronze Age Dolmens (burial mounds), or the 11th-century Alcazaba, a Moorish fortress.
Outdoor lovers, meanwhile, will enjoy hiking La Pena de los Enamorados (Lover’s Rock), an outcrop that resembles the shape of a human face and has an interesting local legend attached to it, while the area of El Torcal (15 kilometres away) is home to astounding limestone rock formations. The famous Caminito del Rey is 45 minutes drive from Antequera. It is a one way walk and you either start in the North and walk to the South or vice versa. A bus service is leaving every 30 mins. to bring people from North to South or vice versa. Look a the pictures below to see the hiking tracks.
