The Malaga city of Antequera, located at the main crossroads of Andalusia and known as “the heart” of the autonomous community, has been and is a must for travelers and travelers of all time. Its magnificent monumental complex is the result of its historical past, and is reflected in more than fifty buildings of religious and civil architecture dating from the Bronze Age to the 18th century.
One of the elements that identifies its Holy Week is the “Correr la Vega”, a long-awaited tradition both for its inhabitants and for the numerous tourists that are approaching at that time to the town and whose origin, apparently, is due to an ancient Tradition that was to take the images to the highest point of the city to bless the lands of La Vega de Antequera.
On Thursdays and Fridays, at the end of the procession, the “brothers” of the cofradías who process those days, with the exception of La Soledad, take the thrones marching to the beginning of a slope or hill and, with The bell warning, start a very emotional race carrying the thrones to where the fields of la Vega are to be seen, so they can be blessed.
Fuentedepiedra, located in the western half of the region of Antequera, is especially known for its salt lake that houses the second largest breeding colony of pink flamingos in Europe.
In September, coinciding with the feast of its patron saint, they celebrate the “Ribbin Horse Race”, inspired by the fair and jousting tournaments. They go as galloping knights trying to enter the tip of the spear in one of the metal rings hanging tied by a ribbon.
Today the spears have been replaced by wooden pikes and the race is chaired by the “Manolas” girls from the village chosen for the occasion which also are responsible for the embroidery of the tapes used to hold the rings.
