Recinto monumental de la alcazaba

Take a walk under the dense foliage with its fine views over the Sierra del Torcal, the Antequera Plain and the town centre. Then enter the first fortress in the kingdom of Grenada captured by the Christians. The 15C walls were bult with recuperated Roman material and today surround a pleasantgarden. Discover the Star Tower, the White Tower and the keep topped with a little temple that houses the popular bell of Antequera.
