Description

This is a region of flat lands dotted with occasional hills, a crossroads between the Mediterranean and the River Guadalquivir, with fertile valleys where the rivers collect into small lakes.

The traveller will discover a vast heritage, with monuments created both by nature and by man. Antequera has the most important megalithic monument in Europe: the Menga dolmen, as well as the Viera and El Romeral dolmens; the Fuente de Piedra lake is a sanctuary for a colony of pink flamingos; and El Torcal is a natural museum with mysterious sculptures carved by erosion out of a huge limestone rock.

Examples of Baroque architecture can be found scattered throughout the towns of Alameda, Archidona with its famous Plaza Ochavada square, Campillos, Humilladero, Mollina, Teba and others.
