Create an itinerary including El Torcal de Antequera
El Torcal de Antequera offers impressive views of an expansive stretch of dramatic natural rock formations. Limestone from the Jurassic era remained here after the prehistoric sea dried up. The formations left behind now have names: the Sphinx, the Jug, the Camel, the Screw, and more. Keep an eye out for wild roses; orchids, of which there are 30 varieties in the park; and wildlife, such as the Andalusian mountain goat. Scenic viewpoints are accessible from all the hiking trails. As long as it’s not one of the busier weekends of the year, you can take your car all the way to the upper visitors’ center.

  • Up to the visitor centre by 10 am on a Wednesday morning, plenty of parking, amber walk for 3km, plenty of photos and time for a coffee and way by 12. Great views, well worth the visit

  • In Antequera I rented an e bike for 35€, to get me up to this park. Getting out of town was the most complicated of the journey. It took about an hour to cycle there, and I hiked the yellow trail...

  • Nice for easy and short walk. Parking on top, just next to path start. Restaurant/bar available there with pleasant prices. Great panoramic views. Rocks on path very slippery though during rain. Brush and bucket for cleaning shoes at the end of path is very nice and thoughtful touch!
  • Really enjoyed this park. We went on a Sunday and while it was very busy we still had a great time. We arrived at 10.30 and the top car park was already full. A good shuttle bus system is in place so we were able to park in the bottom car park and catch the shuttle for €2 per person for the return trip (keep your ticket for the return trip), When we came back to our car about 12.30 the bottom car park was also full and people were parked on the side of the road. I’d recommend coming early or later in the afternoon when some people have left. The scenery is great, we enjoyed the walk and the cafe had good coffee.
