Petra of Andalucía & El Torcal Day Trip

We Love Spain does it again with a BRAND NEW, completely unique excursion, taking you to two of Andalucías best-kept secrets: the Petra of Andalucía & Torcal Day Trip. First, take the morning to awe at what locals call the "Petra of Andalucía." El Coto de las Canteras is an ancient stone quarry dating back to the turdetano period in the 5th century BCE (pre-Roman). Today it has been restored and decorated with beautiful Iberian sculptures for visitors and events.

After that, we will head to the beautiful town of Antequera, known as the "heart of Andalucía," where we will enjoy some free time to see the sites and have lunch.

WHAT WE WILL VISIT ON THE Petra of Andalucía & Torcal Day Trip


El Coto de las Canteras is better known as the Petra de Andalucía and is hardly known at all by tourists despite its beauty.  It is a stone quarry used from as far back as the Turdetano period in the 5th century BCE.  It is here that the Iberian civilizations carved out the stones for building.  This practice was carried on throughout passing civilizations until the 20th century when it was restored and decorated with beautiful Iberian scupltures and used for concerts, weddings, and visits.  It is an incredibly impressive space that you won´t be able to photograph enough.

El Torcal de Antequera is a natural park made up of unusual limestone rock formations dating back to over 200 million years ago.  Besides admiring the strange shapes and exploring hidden caves, here you can also find marine fossils since the whole area was under the sea 100 million years ago.  The park also boasts of a plethera of beautiful plantlife and wild animals.
