Antequera



This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Antequera Dolmens are a collection of megalithic monuments (structures made using only large interlocking stones without the use of mortar) based in the region of Antequera, Andalusia.

Antequera has a long and fascinating history; it has been a settlement since the native Iberians of the Bronze Age. Since then it has been a sought after location by every invading force, which has afforded the town a great diversity of historical interest: burial mounds, dolmens, Roman baths, a Moorish castle, Gothic churches, Renaissance fountains and baroque bell towers. Antequera is dominated in the most part by its medieval architecture, having many gothic spires strewn across the town, but the Moorish fortress is possibly the most imposing and impressive monument.Since then it has been a sought after location by every invading force, which has afforded the town a great diversity of historical interest: burial mounds, dolmens, Roman baths, a Moorish castle, Gothic churches, Renaissance fountains and baroque bell towers.

While we were there we found our brake pads had worn out. So an extra day and a trip on Gladys on a low loader.
