Antequera is a city that stands out for its Roman and Muslim wealth. Sienda a city with great influences throughout history, its legacy is immense with locations such as La Alcazaba, the Roman baths and other incredible places.
Arch of the Giants
The Arch of the Giants located in Antequera (province of Malaga, Spain) is a construction made by municipal initiative in 1585 within the approaches of humanism, in order to replace a bend access of the Muslim fence wanting to evoke with its great semicircular span the triumphal arches of the classical world.
Traditionally, this construction has been known as “Butcher of the Moors”. Actually, what we can see today are the remains of some Baths, which undoubtedly belonged to a sumptuous Roman villa, located next to the course of the river of the Villa, and about two kilometers away from the old “municipium”.
