  • Rather than the spectacular monument is the history of the same. If that it is true that from here there is a wonderful view

  • This magnificent and careful people surprised us very pleasantly surprised. Its medieval structure is worth mentioning, at the height of Albarracín. Every corner of the village is a postcard that take in the retina. The Collegiate Church gives a medieval air like no other and the natural space of the bridges of the river Vero is spectacular and beautiful. I recommend first making the route of the catwalks, eat and then enjoy a quiet stroll through medieval streets and their angotas. Gateways route better to start it into the existing downspout near the collegiate church. We will return.

  • The main church of Antequera Impressive, majestic, even overpowering - the words used to describe this Renaissance gem are many. It is the major church of the 28 that the city possesses, but is no longer used for religious services, but for concerts and cultural exhibitions. It is next to the Alcazaba, through the Giants' Arch - El Arco de los Gigantes. Built between 1514 and 1550 on the instigation of the Bishop of Malaga, it was the first church in Andalucia to be built in Renaissance style, and served as inspiration for part of the Cathedral of Granada. There is no free entrance for services, obviously, since there are none. The €3 fee is reduced to €1.50 for the over-65s, and it's worth waving your passport for the reduction both here and in the Alcazaba. I managed it with my TfL Freedom Bus Pass . . . my wrinkled face may have helped too! There is an interesting wall plaque commemorating the visit of the King and Queen, and a wooden float of the "Taranca", a mythical semi-religious figure half-woman, half serpent or dragon, which heads the processions at Corpus Christi, to the delight of the children watching. .
  • If you like looking at churches, you will like Antequera because it has quite a few - there are twenty-eight churches in all but the finest of the religious buildings is the 16th century Real Colegiata de Santa María la Mayor, which has been designated a national monument.
  • Amazing place with great views and scenic road leading to it. This is one of the highlights of the area. Stick to the views restaurants around are mediocre and can be skipped
  • Unique historical monument. Spectacular views all within a fantastic people and very well preserved. It is worth losing by these places.

  • Conjunto arquitetónico de singular beleza. Vistas magníficas sobre o vale do rio Vero, e sobre o povoado de Alquezar.
