Wolf “Lobo” Park of Antequera

The Wilder Heart of Andalucia

In amongst a wild and natural landscape, this special wildlife reserve offers a shore excursion into the wild side of Andalucia. The “Lobo” or Wolf Park of Antequera provides a sanctuary to several different wolf species and accompanied by a knowledgeable wolf guide, we are taken on an approx. 90-minute walk around the spacious enclosures that separate the different wolf packs and through a beautiful and traditional landscape filled with olive and oak trees as well as typical Mediterranean flora.

Learn more about these magnificent animals, their pack behavior, the legend that surround them as well as the great work done by the Wolf Park staff to preserve and educate people about these rare and incredible animals.

The wild, natural setting, the combined sounds of the wolves in full howl and a with a splendid backdrop of El Torcal – our final and next stop on this tour – makes a visit to the Lobo / Wolf Park a perfect Marbella Escape Shore Excursion into the wilder side of Andalucia.

The Dolmens of Antequera

UNESCO World Heritage Monuments

The Dolmens of Antequera now registered on UNESCO World Heritage List, are becoming rapidly becoming a key ancient site to visit. Located just outside Antequera, the three Dolmens – Menga Dolmen, Viera and the Tholos de El Romeral – are the first stop on our Antequera Shore Excursion.

Taking us back at least 5000 years into the history of the people of this ancient place, these huge monuments, constructed out of massive stone slabs are curiously orientated with regard to the winter and summer solstices as well as nearby notable features of the landscape.

Your guide will help you to understand their place in history, the people that built them and their unique orientations, all of which combined contribute to their special UNESCO World Heritage status.

El Torcal Visit

Surreal and Unforgettable Landscape

El Torcal de Antequera, a karst landscape filled with surreal, eerie and unique limestone rock formations is one of the most beautiful natural parks in Andalucia, one of the most beautiful karst landscapes in the world and undoubtedly one of our favourite stops here at Marbella Escapes!

We walk an easy 1.5km route around the park, leaving from the visitor’s center. which enables us to see some of the most distinctive of the many formations and provides amazing views over the surrounding landscape. We can also take a slight detour to see some examples of the ammonite fossils the park is famous for.

It’s dramatic and harsh landscape, its labyrinth “streets” lined with surreal rock formations, a unique flora and fauna as well as breathtaking views is a perfect setting to the final stop on our shore excursion and will provide you with great memories (and dozens of photos) of a perfect Marbella Escape Shore Excursion.
