Welcome to Paraje Natural Torcal de Antequera
South of Antequera are the weird and wonderful rock formations of the Paraje Natural Torcal de Antequera. This 12-sq-km area of gnarled, serrated and pillared limestone formed as a sea bed 150 million years ago and now rises to 1336m (El Torcal). Not surprisingly, this other-worldly landscape fanned by fresh mountain breezes was declared a Unesco World Heritage site (along with Antequera's dolmens) in 2016.
The park has an impressive visitor centre, which is the starting point for various hiking routes.
