A host of historic monuments in the very heart of Andalusia

Antequera is a wealthy town, both culturally and economically. Its historic centre is made up of more than 50 monuments and buildings dating as far back as the Bronze Age, such as the Menga Cave, Viera and Romeral dolmens. The castle and Santa María Basilica can be found at the top of the town. In the historic centre there are a series of churches, collegiate churches, monasteries and convents, palaces, arches, gates, shrines, stately houses and a citadel. Most outstanding are Nájera Palace (18th century), currently the municipal museum, the Catalinas Convent and the palace of the Marquises of La Peña, in Mudejar and Renaissance style. It is well worth a trip to the El Torcal Nature Area nearby. Don't miss the Easter week celebrations, rich in tradition, with ancient historical roots.
