Description and itinerary
ANTEQUERA, A LANDSCAPE FROM ANOTHER ERA:
Today the Torcal offers an impressive landscape considered unique in the world and constitutes one of the best and most spectacular examples of karst relief in Europe.
During the Jurassic period, the Torcal de Antequera was an elongated maritime corridor, but then there was the uplift (more than 1000 meters above sea level) of the sediments at the bottom of the corridor, giving rise to the Torcal mountain ranges, famous for their mushroom shapes!
Antequera is famous above all for its Torcal, but the city also has a lot to offer. Its historic center is well preserved and from the Alcazaba you can admire the Peña de los Enamorados, which has a very characteristic morphology, as it looks like the head of a lying Indian, so it is also known as “El Indio de Antequera”.
Right next to the center of Antequera you can also admire the Archaeological Ensemble of Dolmens of Antequera, considered one of the best and most recognized in the world. In addition, El Dolmen de Menga is the largest dolmen preserved in Europe, before the famous Stonehenge.
In our excursion we will make a hiking route in the Torcal, enjoying the magnificent scenery that will leave you in love. We will take our time for the route, you can take pictures and immerse yourself in nature. We will take advantage of this unique landscape to have a picnic with the group, so we recommend to bring some food and water.
We will also visit the city of Antequera and its viewpoints.
We recommend that you wear sports shoes and comfortable clothing. We also recommend that you bring enough water and food for the picnic.
