El Torcal de Antequera - Spain

El Torcal de Antequera El Torcal de AntequeraEl Torcal de Antequera

Situated high above the city of Antequera, El Torcal is a nature reserve known for its unusual rock formations. The winds and rain have carved a karst landscape here that is quite remarkable and one of the most impressive in Europe. From a distance the mountain top seems just to be cracked, but form closer up the extent of the rock formations can be seen. Much of the most interesting features can be accessed along one of the waymarked trails which wind their way through the landscape between the tall rocks. Other parts of the park are so twisted and broken that they are impassable on foot – here the wildlife, including snakes and mountain goats thrive.
