El Torcal Natural Park, Antequera

4.9
#1 of 210 in Wildlife in Andalucia
El Torcal Natural Park offers impressive views of an expansive stretch of dramatic natural rock formations. Limestone from the Jurassic era remained here after the prehistoric sea dried up. The formations left behind now have names: the Sphinx, the Jug, the Camel, the Screw, and more. Keep an eye out for wild roses; orchids, of which there are 30 varieties in the park; and wildlife, such as the Andalusian mountain goat. Scenic viewpoints are accessible from all the hiking trails. As long as it’s not one of the busier weekends of the year, you can take your car all the way to the upper visitors’ center.

  • Spectacular landscape. Advisable to go with time and a rewarding ride. That Yes, being at altitude, it's cold, go with warm clothing and shoe mountain.

  • Worth a visit, the walks through the rock formations are very beautiful. Note that the parking lot is not very big, and so may have to wait for "permission" to Park (I was lucky and got place, but officials control the flow of cars and those who arrived later had to wait).
