Stopped off briefly on the 'buggy' tour to take photos. Can see over the whole town - amazing views. Worth staying longer to have a good look round

We loved being in Antequera for most of a day but here is the highlight. First tip is that entry was free after 14.00 not that it is very costly anyway! We love the period of Spanish history where Jew, Arab and Christian lived happily...More

There were cars parked outside so it must be possible to avoid the steps used.
