Antequera

Antequera

You really should visit this historical Andalucian town, property here is still relatively in expensive, the Bronze Age and the native Iberians had lots of burial mounds, dolmens, Roman baths, a Moorish Castle, Gothic churches, Renaissance fountains and baroque bell towers. Real estate agents are catered for, the first impression of Antequera is that of a typical medieval town, with the spires of many churches and the walls and towers of the great Moorish fortress silhouetted against the sky. In the valley below lie rich farmlands irrigated by the Guadalhorce River, for centuries this has been one of ANDALUCIA'S most fertile areas, it is currently a leading producer of asparagus, cereals and olives.
