El Torcal Natural Park, Antequera

4.9
#1 of 155 in Wildlife in Andalucia
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.

  • I've done routes by this site at different times of the year and obviously the best time spring and fall, although in winter, with a good team, you can enjoy some very unusual snow-covered landscapes. Routes are generally not difficult to do, but you have to go carefully, especially with children, the most affordable is yellow. It is one of those must-visit Andalusia. A destination that will not leave you indifferent. Ideal for all types of people. No matter the age you have or what your tastes are. Surely you can find something by what it will be worth you visit it. And it is very likely that you want on future occasions. One day is not enough to see, meet, and enjoy the wonders that encloses the Torcal of Antequera and its surroundings. Its impressive and original karstic landscape is one of its major attractions. It also contains other many elements natural and cultural attractions that have earned him the Declaration of world heritage of humanity by Unesco. You can eat from sandwich during the journey or in any of the multiple sales that abound in the area, outside of the torcal, I encourage everyone to visit this enclave.

  • Worth it to go, very special place. Easily accessible by car. We have not walked around a lot, there was quite cold and windy but ... a lot of pictures!
