The town  of Antequera itself is also very interesting and well worth a visit, a lively Spanish town with plenty of roman archeological traces. Be sure to try the local speciality ”Porra Antequerana”, which is a variation of the Spanish Salmorejo (cold tomato and bread soup). 4494091661_e6f7ff1081_m
