Main Tourist Attractions
Historians will love Antequera due to its mass of monuments of bygone eras. On
the outskirts of the city are the Dolmens, ancient tombs that are over 5,000
years old. A Roman bath house was uncovered in recent years; there is also the
16th century Arch of Giants which is located on the way to the Moorish castle,
from the 13th century. Several ornate churches and a 19th century bullring are
also worth a look. The surrounding area is a favourite for those who love
activities such as mountain biking, walking and hiking. Nearby El Chorro has a
lake where visitors can take part in activities such as fishing. And for those
who simply must have a beach, Malaga is under an hours drive and offers miles of
sand and watersports such as jet skiing and windsurfing.
Antequera is a popular destination with tourists and so it has a mixture of
shops. There are small family-run businesses that offer everyday essentials,

Malaga and spend a fortune in the various boutiques and the El Corte Ingles
