Join us on Sunday for a very interesting visit and walk to this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
El Torcal de Antequera is a nature reserve in the Sierra del Torcal mountain range located south of the city of Antequera. It is known for its unusual landforms, and is one of the most impressive karst landscapes
The Jurassic age limestone is about 150 million years old . These seabeds were uplifted to an elevation of over 1300 meters during the Tertiary era, resulting in a modest mountain range of flat-lying limestone, which is rare in Andalucia.
El Torcal supports an impressive array of wildflowers including rock-dwellers like Linaria anticaria, Saxifraga biternata, Linaria oblongifolia, Viola demetria, Saxifraga reuterana, Polypodium australe, and other plants like lilies, red peonies, wild rose trees and thirty varieties of orchid.
On the way to El Torcal we will have a stop over by the Meghalitic Dolmens. The Antequera Dolmens are one of the most valued prehistoric sites in Europe. Often compared with Stonehenge.
The walk itself in El Torcal is easy (few kilometres) but very interesting due to the Jurassic Park like terrain. Basic shoes and outdoor clothing is enough. Note! Altitude is over 1000 meters, wind stopper jacket is a must.
