El Torcal Natural Park, Antequera

(4.8/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
El Torcal Natural Park offers impressive views of an expansive stretch of dramatic natural rock formations. Limestone from the Jurassic era remained here after the prehistoric sea dried up. The formations left behind now have names: the Sphinx, the Jug, the Camel, the Screw, and more. Keep an eye out for wild roses; orchids, of which there are 30 varieties in the park; and wildlife, such as the Andalusian mountain goat. Scenic viewpoints are accessible from all the hiking trails. As long as it’s not one of the busier weekends of the year, you can take your car all the way to the upper visitors’ center. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to El Torcal Natural Park by using our Antequera tour planner.
