Located right in the center of Andalucia is the town of ANTEQUERA. There are plenty of sights to be seen and it is known for its abundance of churches. Also famous for its Plaza de Toros or Bullring, Antequera's main industry is not only tourism. It is an important area for Olive Oil production. The whole area around the town is covered with olive trees.
The district is also known for its Molina wines, dishes such as 'porra antequera', a type of bread rolls called 'mollettes' and the confectionary produced in the convents.
