Spain’s Stonehenge – the heart and soul of Andalusia in ancient Antequera; Alan Hazel; A Luxury Travel Blog
Little known outside of Andalusia until recently, the ancient city of Antequera in Malaga province has gained a lot of international recognition of late. Much of this renewed attention comes thanks to the Antequera Dolmens Site being awarded a UNESCO World Heritage designation in July of 2016; however, the town has held strategic importance for millennia. So old is the settlement, dating back at least as far as the Bronze age, that the Romans already named the site Antequaria, the ancient city, before the time of Christ.
Today Antequera is known as “the heart of Andalusia” for its central location midway between Malaga to the south and Cordoba to the north, Sevilla to the west and Granada to the east.
