Leather is known for being one of the great holiday purchases of Spain and in Andalucia holidaymakers will find it no different.
Every Tuesday in Antequera there is a market where, aside from fresh local foods such as cheese and nuts, visitors can purchase leather items.
Clothes stalls with local and fashionable items are available and haggling in Spanish will be an interesting experience for all.
The surrounding town is well worth a visit for anyone who misses market day and its typical medieval features will be of interest to all.
Inside the town Roman baths, the renaissance church, the bullring and the Moorish castle represent a fascinating insight to the history of the area.
But the enormous limestone block that stretches 880 metres in the air is known as the 'Lover Leap' after history tells how a Christian man and a Moorish girl fell in love were chased by Moorish soldiers before leaping from the edge instead of denying their love.
