Hiking in Torcal de Antequera from Malaga
The trail selected for this activity is the most striking because you can admire the most visible rock formations such as: the camel, the sphinx, the robot, the cathedrals and the screw. In addition, in the morning it is very likely that you will be able to see the mountain goats roaming around the area. The most curious thing is to observe these animals climbing on the rocks - their climbing ability is truly amazing! As we walk at a leisurely pace we will pass viewpoints with breathtaking views of the natural park. Get your camera ready! All along the route you will find unique views. Little by little we will get closer to the most expected, the figures carved in the rocks that have been there for millions of years. We can also find fossils and an area with lots of vegetation. This landscape is undoubtedly one of the most special in Europe. To finish this adventure, we will reach a beautiful viewpoint where we will have incredible views of the valley of Villanueva de Concepción. Keep your eyes peeled! Because you might have a sighting of vultures, their nests are usually very close to this point so it is not unusual to see them flying around here. Did you know that this species is in danger of extinction? Moreover, they are very large birds of up to 2.5 metres. The way back will be just as entertaining, as we will be able to see another impressive area, the place where the Tornillo del Torcal is located. This natural monument is the most protected of all the park. Let yourself fall in love with the wonders of nature.
