Romantic Legend !
maj 2014 • Pary
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 the absolutely charming town of Antequera.

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.

Lovers' Rock
gru 2014 • Znajomi
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.

A Beautiful Sight from Antequera
mar 2014 • Pary
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.

Always a Beautiful 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.

Very Interesting Mountain

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.

Beautiful Sight
sty 2012 • Pary
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 became a prisoner in a small town where the Moors had power. The daughter of the Moorish town leader was called Tagzona and she went to the local prison, where she met Tello. It was love at first sight for both of them! They decided to elope because at that time interfaith marriages were not allowed.

As they were escaping, the Moorish guards chased them. The lovers arrived at the rock formation and decided to climb the rock. The Moors were in hot pursuit. When the lovers reached the top, the Moorish soldiers surrounded them. The lovers held each other at the precipice and could see no escape. When they were captured, they would be separated. So they decided to jump to their deaths together! That is how the rock got its name. They say the rock has the profile of Tagzona.
