    It has historical interest but my best is that opposite there are good views of Antequera and gives access to the collegiate church and the Alcazaba. Said this didn't impress me too much.

    The CRA is a large and a bit bamboozling, laid there. The view from the balcony nearby is great.

  • Access to the Alcazaba, the Colegiata de Santa Maria la Mayor, and great views Puff your way up the steps of the Cuesta Barbacana hill and at the top is this gateway. Built in the mid-sixteenth century, it gives an interesting view of the Colegiata de Santa Maria la Mayor, now unconsecrated as a church and used for concerts. The precinct - Plaza de los Escribanos - on the other side of the arch shows some very attractive little houses, and a good restaurant. Escribanos - scribes - as this is where the clerics lived and wrote. Once through the arch you can visit either the church or the Alcazaba, or both! Don't forget to show proof of age for the 65+ reduction in the normal entry fee of €3 for each. .
  • this is not the position of the site its at the entrance to the alcazaba
  • Ok
  • Antequera is beautiful in itself, but also has El Torcal, dolmens,... A good excursion.
