This was very nice to see. Nothing like this in my country and it is very original made me feel back in time. more »
We were around Alquezar so we decided to stop by to take a look. The whole village was like a ghost town, we walked to this attraction and it was closed, you can only visit it in summer or during seve... more »
This is a beautiful church, well preserved and inexpensive ($2.50 E). They have different translations to guide you. They let you walk throughout. Love this quaint town! more »
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
Nora MiquelEssential! so much for the views of the beautiful town of Alquezar and the landscape, as well as for the building. A journey through time from the 9th to the URs.XVI.
Carlos CastigeaThis historic site, must-see is located atop a large rock above the village. Admission is 3 euros. You can see some curious cloisters, with beautiful capitals and frescoes on the walls. The cloister has two floors and you can visit the two, from which there is a panoramic view of the beautiful area. The Church has an amazing altarpiece, it is worth to see it. Also the walk to the area is very nice inside the village.
