Antequera

It is the most extensive municipality of the province, occupied for the most part by a plain of very fertile lands, in which predominates olive grove and cereals, surrounded by the Sierras of El Torcal and the Central Calizo Arch, in which stands out majestically the Peña de Los Enamorados, (Lover’s Rock) full of numerous myths and legends. As per the Unesco World Heritage list: The site comprises three megalithic monuments: the Menga and Viera dolmens and the Tholos of El Romeral, and two natural monuments: La Peña de los Enamorados and El Torcal mountainous formations, which are landmarks within the property. Built during the Neolithic and Bronze Age out of large stone blocks, these monuments form chambers with lintelled roofs or false cupolas. These three tombs, buried beneath their original earth tumuli, are one of the most remarkable architectural works of European prehistory and one of the most important examples of European Megalithism. Antequera has a good reputation for the baroque churches, amongst the best in Andalucia.
