Antequera its about 45 kilometres from Malaga city.
It can be reached taking the main roadway out of the capital towards Granada, watching out for the sign at Las Pedrizas.
The valley opens out before us as we descend down into it, and Antequera is just off to our left on the road to Cordoba.
Is a large plain rich in cultivation and with many typical Andalusian-style farmhouses surrounded by olive trees and cereal crops.
The entrance to the town is close to La Peña de los Enamorados. With more than 800 square kilometres, this is the biggest municipality in the province of Malaga, bordering the province of Cordoba to the north and with the Mountains of Malaga to the south.
The privileged situation of Antequera, in the geographical centre of Andalucía, had made it one of the most important towns between upper and lower Andalucía, Granada and Seville.
It is a modern town with all the services and shopping facilities one would expect in a large town, but it also has a past rich in culture and history that is, perhaps, unequalled in any other southern Spanish town of its size.
