I love legends and this is one of the best. Apparently two lovers (one Christian, the other Moor) leapt from the top of the mountain when people tried to separate them. If you look at the mountain, it does appear to be a reclining face. You can get the best views of it from the overlook area on top of... More

This rock resembling a resting face can be seen from the spectacular ALCAZABA DE ANTEQUERA (4 euro,s) and many other viewing points in and around Antequera. the best views in alcazaba are from the " Torre de Homenaje" there is a legend around this rock forming one rocky face out of 2 unhappy lovers.

Even if you are not yet enamored with a singular someone, you will love the views dramatized by this huge rock [small mountain]. Great for hikers and climbers, as well as photographers.

There are many hills in downtown Antequera where one can get wonderful views of the Peñon de los Enamorados. It looks like the profile of a face. The Colegiata de Santa Maria is a good viewpoint for this sight.

The Penon de los Enamorados can be seen as one approaches Antequera by car and it looks like a huge face that is looking up to the sky. One can see this when one goes to Seville from Malaga. The legend of the lovers who leaped from the peak is also interesting.

There seems to be the profile of a face when one looks at this mountain, and this has led to many stories and legends about lovers from the past.

Near Antequera there is a huge rock formation called the Peñon de los Enamorados, which translates to lovers’ rock. It looks like a huge face that is looking up to the sky. The legend about this rock formation is quite interesting. During the middle ages, the frontier between Christians and Moors was constantly changing. A young Christian warrior called Tello... More
