Just outside of Antequera are 2 places we went to visit: the Dolmens from 3800 BC, which impressed us with their size and the Lagunas de Fuente de Piedra, a salt water lake which is inhabited by many birds, especially one of the largest Flamingo colonies in Europe.
Driving south along the Mediterranean coast we stopped first at Salobreña.
|way to the castle of Salobreña|
The town of white washed houses lies on a steep hill with a moorish castle from the 10th century on top. While wandering the small streets we often had nice views.
Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata - Nijar - a National Park at the coast of Almería founded in 1987 which saved this beautiful coastline from destruction through speculative tourism development. The coast of about 30 km is a wild and isolated landscape with some of Europe's oldest geological features. The mountain range is characterised by volcanic rock formations in many forms. This part of Spain has the driest climate in Europe and the most beautiful beaches!
