Antequera train stations - left luggage??

Hi there

We plan to spend a few hours in Antequera before getting a train to Malaga. Does anyone know if there is anywhere we could leave our luggage whilst we are there?

Also, I believe there are 2 train stations. Are they far apart?

Thanks very much to anyone who might be able to help.

Hello again,

Santa Ana Antequera is 15 km. outside the town and 'old' Antequera is maybe 1km and walkable to the town. Certainly no left luggage facility at 'old' Antequera and no indication that there is storage at Santa Ana, here - adif.es/en_US/…informacion_000016.shtml

Best wishes.

Hi again!

What we want is to go by train from Ronda to Malaga, but the only direct train we can find leaves at about 7am - a bit early! That's why we thought of going via Antequera and spending a few hours there before getting a train on to Malaga. However, looks like too much hassle now. We really want to travel by train, so I'm wondering if you can suggest some other way of getting from Ronda to Malaga by train, perhaps via some other place we do not know about? Any ideas very gratefully received!

Thanks again for your great input so far, WomBatt!! It's been really helpful.

In certain parts of Spain bus is far more frequent and often quicker than the train. You'll find your options more limited in this part of Andalucia using the train.

lolly1,

You are indeed limited.

Is 0854 out of Ronda to 'old' Antequera station (arrive 1003) too early for you?

Then several hours around Antequera and bus to Malaga (1 hour journey). The problem is your luggage.

When is this? My wife and I are in Antequera for three days soon.

Hi Cathy and WomBatt,

Thanks so much for your advice.

Now we're sure we are aware of all the options, - thanks to the great input on Tripadvisor! - we've decided just to get the train to Malaga via Bobadilla. Pity we won't get to Antequera this time - but there's always the next time!

Best wishes and thanks again.

Lolly
