Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Andalucia / Province of Malaga / Costa del Sol / Antequera / 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.

Simply loved it! I've already been twice and will go many more times. It's simply incredible what nature is capable of, and this site is a clear example. There are various routes and paths to follow, depending on how fit one is. There's also a cafeteria to have a nib and vending machines for refreshments. I would also recommend nocturnal visits to the observatory, on site, where an astrologer explains the formation of constellations, the different planets, which you can even see through an amazing telescope. It's 9 euros, and completely worth it!
Nature is the best sculptor. Rainwater has shaped these rocks and it is up to your imagination to align them with real existing images. Avoid to visit on weekends and try to get their in the morning (10 a.m.). But carry a sweater. It is fresh up there.....
