Antequera Andalucia Spain G11 Jan2012


Antequera Andalucia Spain.

"The Indian" - an 880 m high massif known as La Peña de los Enamorados, or "The Lovers' Leap".

Legend has it that a young Christian man from Antequera fell in love with a beautiful Moorish girl from a nearby town.
This did not go down well with the Moorish soldiers, who chased the couple to the top of mountain. In the end, they both lept to their deaths rather than renounce their love for each other.

Glad you like the series Anna.
Antequera is about an hours drive away from us, I'm not one for towns and cities but I love this one! :)
