Antequera is a historical Andalucían town steeped in history and legend. The town has a profusion of burial mounds, baroque bell towers, dolmens, Gothic churches, a Moorish Castle, Renaissance fountains and Roman baths.
At first sight, Antequera appears to be a typical medieval town, with the church spires and the walls and towers of the great Moorish fortress silhouetted against the sky. In the valley below Antequera lie rich farmlands irrigated by the Guadalhorce River. For centuries this has been one of Andalucía's most fertile areas, and is currently a leading producer of asparagus, cereals and olives. In summer, its fields turn brilliant yellow with sunflowers.

The town and valley are overlooked by an enormous crag of limestone, 880 metres high, called La Peña de los Enamorados, or "The Lovers' Leap".
The name comes from a local legend about an impossible love affair between a young Christian man from Antequera and a beautiful Moorish girl from nearby Archidona, who were driven to the top of the cliff by the Moorish soldiers, where, rather than renounce their love, they chose to hurl themselves into the abyss.
