Antequera Travel Guide: 177 reviews and 486 photos

The city of Antequera is some 35 miles or so to the north of Malaga, snuggling under the towering mountains that seperate it from the coast, and on the edge of the great plain that reaches out to Cordoba.

Carmen had recommended we visit the city, and it had been our intention to hire a car during our second week, and travel around. However, due to the poor weather, we relied more on public transport, which on reflection was not a bad idea.

Such an ordinary fountain, in the Plaza de Santiago, but we took a closer look and discovered it had many fish in it, some of them quite large. I thought of England, and wondered how long they would stay there, in the open, back home???

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Excellent city, and very clean
  • Cons:We spent too long finding the nicest places
  • In a nutshell:Know what you want to see before going, if possible

    Nice views of one of the lesser-known Spanish towns. I hope to visit Spain on my next European trip!

    Let's play word association. "Auntie Vera = Antequera." That's funny. Great photos too.
