Alcazaba de Antequera. On our way back to home, we made a stop in the city of Antequera to visit the historical centre, and so we took a visit of the “Alcazaba”, the entrance fee is 6€ pro person, and you get a small plan with info about the Alcazaba. This is a well conserved castle and indeed a very... More

If you like ruins you will like this old fortress at the top of Antequera. Parts have been restored, parts left ruined. The entrance fee includes a vocal description recording which i found very helpful and informative. Great views over the city and surrounding countryside.

Tourist train can be taken from tourist office to top of hill and back down to save your legs. Short visit was enough . Some beautiful views and reasonable entry price.

The visit to the alcazaba was very enjoyable. Fine views and good value including an audio guide. Our guidebook had wrongly informed us that it is closed to the public, it is very much open even on Mondays when much of Antequera is closed, and has been since 2008. On my return I wondered if our guidebook, now in the... More

We really loved Antequera and the Alcazaba is one of the reasons. After a nice walk uphill from the town center, you will be able to buy entry tickets at the gate. The fortress is really magnificent, and the garden is a true oasis. The audioguide is rather nice, although it takes some time if you want to listen to... More

A good castle (but there are so many in Spain). The audioguide doesnt really give an insight into the history of the site which goes back to the visigoths, but focuses more on its change of hands and defences. The views are breathtaking. Its very well kept and very affordable. I would recommend if you are in the area.

We visited Antequera on a 'spare' day in our holiday, as it wasn't too far away and looked nice, without knowing too much about it. However, we were extremely impressed by the town, and certainly by the Alcazaba! The entrance was €4 per person to just see the alcazaba or €6 to do the church next door as well. An... More
