[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
"The busy market town of Antequera has long been strategically important; first as Roman Anticaria, and later as a Moorish border fortress defending Granada."

We walked through the town and up a steep hill to reach the castle.
This is the 'Castillo Arabe', the 13th century Moorish castle.

I was fortunate to get this high viewpoint from one of the towers.It was a very cold day, quite untypical for Southern Spain and the end of April!
Thanks for looking.

Hi Jean.

Very nice view, I do like the people added to thins to show the height and distance to scale.
The greenery and pale natural stone contrasts so very well here....yet another place in need of a visit.
