Antequera Travel Guide
Antequera Parks & Gardens
El Torcal Natural Reserve - Just a few km outside of town is this 17sq km nature reserve that is well suited to hikers. There are three routes through the park and they all pass unique rock formations. Just head for the village of Villanueva de la Concepcion which is 15km south from Antequera. There is a small museum and information centre at the entrance. It can get hot without much shade.
Lagoon of Fuente de Piedra - Known as the Pink Lagoon for the thousands of Flamingos attracted to the 6km by 3km lagoon. Located just outside the town and teeming with the pink birds who come to breed. Because of it's location and the quality of water. A truly magnificent sight.
El Chorro - This is the Lake District of the area and the three lakes are artificially made from the dam. The cliffs around the lakes are sheer, towering and majestic. Popular in the summer for picnics, swimming and sunbathing.
