Walking & activities in El Torcal de Antequera Nature Reserve
Walking is by far the most important and most interesting activity, with truly spectacular rock formations to be seen from a distance, and walk amongst. Routes tend to be short, particularly in the higher part of El Torcal Nature Reserve. In the lower part is a long and in parts steep path, that follows the route of an old Roman road that crossed El Torcal some 2,000 years ago.
El Torcal also has a limited number of challenging climbing routes. It is a photographer’s paradise, with views across the province as a background, an infinite number of rock shapes to be portraited, and clear, clean skies (there is even an astronomical telescope as proof of the sharpness of the air).
