The Comarca de Antequera is a comarca (county) (with no administrative role) in Andalusia, southern Spain.

It is located in the area of the Surco Intrabético range, on the boundary with the province of Córdoba. The landscape is largely plain (Hoya de Antequera), run by the higher valley of the Guadalhorce river.

The present-day comarca was established in 2003 by the Government of Andalusia.[1]

Municipalities[edit]

The comarca originally included six municipalities, a further municipality, Villanueva de la Concepción, was segregated from Antequera municipality on 17 March 2009:[2]
