The medieval spires dominate the skyline, but there are treasures from every age all the way back to the Bronze Age to be found within Antequera.

The rest of the week sees streets staying very quiet, perfect for stress free exploration. You will regularly catch a glimpse of the stunning views that surround the town as you walk, especially from the top of the roman Arco de los Gigantes (Giants Arch). However, it is the ornate Arab Castle which dominates the town. There is so much to see from an Antequera property that a trip to the Municipal Museum may be the best starting point, allowing you to get an idea of the immense history of Antequera before trying to piece it together for yourself.

Taking an Antequera country property allows you to enjoy the peace and beauty of the best of Andalucian nature without distraction, whether you decide to explore on foot, horse back, bicycle or by car.

The Antequera Holy Week is one of the finest times to be staying in an Antequera country property. The whole town celebrates with traditional ceremonies, music and food, in a festival dating back to Baroque times. The Spring Feria and Real Feria, in May and August respectively, attract visitors to Antequera from many miles, with huge displays or traditional culture, including bull fighting.

Paradise Found!

5 of 5
We absolutely loved Casa Colina... who'd have thought that Paradise would be found at the end of a one kilometre bumpy goat track. Fab villa in a great location with awesome views snd stunning walks. If you want to get away from it all - this is the place for you!
