Create an itinerary including Alcazaba de Antequera
The Alcazaba of Antequera is a Moorish fortress in Antequera, Spain. It was erected over Roman ruins in the 14th century to counter the Christian advance from the north.

The fortress is rectangular in shape, with two towers. Its keep (Spanish: Torre del homenaje, 15th century) is considered amongst the largest of al-Andalus, with the exception of the Comares Tower of the Alhambra.

It is surmounted by a Catholic bell tower/chapel (Templete del Papabellotas) added in 1582.

Connected to the former by a line of walls is the Torre Blanca ("white tower").

  • Interesting place, lots to see. Had a handset in lots of languages to guide you through the site. Lots of steps to climb, but places to rest. Had a gift shop, but it wasn't open. Toilets on site

  • Well worth the walk from the town centre. Good downloadable guide and lots to see. Some great views of the surrounding countryside. Although we bought a joint ticket for the church there was not a lot to see inside it. Best to just view the church from the outside.
  • Such an interesting place to visit. Very well kept. I liked the option for the audio guide simply scan the code and listen on your own mobile
