School groups

The Torcal de Antequera Natural Area has become one of the favorite destinations for school groups around the world, due to its unique landscape and services offered.

In the case of school groups (under 18), the visit can be done freely (without guides) or guided by choosing any of the activities for schoolchildren that we offer in our educational program.

If the group chooses the visit for free, this visit option is free although prior communication is essential. In this way, the Visitor Center and the management of the Natural Area will have a daily visitor forecast, improving the service and attention to the visitor. More information here.

In the case of the guided visit for schoolchildren, we offer a complete program adapted by cycles.

After more than a decade of dedicating ourselves fully to the Pje. N. Torcal de Antequera, we have specialized in visits for schoolchildren, with very didactic and enjoyable tours for students of all ages.
