It may have been.called 'Gigantic' since in its heyday it had huge figures on top-now missing. Really it is merely a large somewhat tatty arch leading towards the Fortress. Worth a photo or two but nothing to get worked up about.

This was excellent. There is not a lot in Antequerra so once you've done this there's not much else. Typical tourist town shops. Not very friendly people

Stunning views make the walk up the hill to this castle worth the heat and effort. An audio history is available and sets the stage by recreating the past through dramatic conversations and explanations. Normally, I wouldn't want to be listening to an audio device,...More

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