Antequera

Making a fresh start in the glorious city of Antequera

Compact, friendly and typically Andalusian, Antequera is a city that’s proving more and more popular with newcomers. It’s home to more than 40,000 people, and is situated around 50km north of Malaga. Thanks to its central inland location, it’s known as the heart of Andalusia.

 

You’ll find a wide selection of property options here, ranging from stylish new apartments in the bustling city centre to large family villas in the outlying suburbs. It’s around an hour’s drive from here to the tourist-friendly beaches of Torremolinos, Fuengirola and Mijas.

 

One of the first things you’ll notice about Antequera is the architecture. The city is home to several stunning churches and convents, and many of them seem to be trying to outdo one another with their beauty. Landmarks such as the Royal Monastery of San Zoilo and the Convent of Madre de Dios are just two examples that are worthy of further exploration.

 

Switch over to the slow lane of life

Antequera began life as an agricultural town, and these days you’ll still find plenty of farms in the surrounding area. Tourism is a major industry now, but it’s still easy to find quiet little side streets containing bars and restaurants that are primarily aimed at the locals.

 

The city’s high street is extremely pretty, and the surrounding hills and mountains are dramatic. One of them, the 880-metre Lover’s Rock, provides an exceptional photo opportunity for those approaching Antequera. The surrounding Antequera Dolmens Site is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
