Antequerra is a small town and well worth a visit. It has been occupied since the bronze age and settled by every invader that has passed the valley from the Vandals to the Moors. On the northern outskirts of the city there are two Bronze Age burial mounds (barrows or dolmens) the Dólmen de Menga[1] and Dólmen de Viera, dating from the 3rd millennium BC. They are the largest such structures in Europe.
Ronda is just one and a half hours away but well worth the drive, this stunning town sits on top of an incredible gorge and has a wealth of tourist attractions, from its beautiful bullring and museums to some of the best restaurants in Andalucia.
From Zambra, with its famous flamenco festival, to the pretty Priego de Cordoba and the hidden old town of Lucena, Cortijo Andalus is surrounded by many interesting and beautiful villages and towns and if you time it right then you may get to see some spectacular festivals hosted by each village and town at different times throughout the year.
