Antequera is near the motorway from Malaga to Granada on the turn-off towards Seville, straight after passing the Málaga mountains. The buses that link with Málaga are excellent and it may be a perfect alternative for your first or last night if you are using Málaga airport.

It is a very pleasant town, where people don't seem to have had their friendliness extinguished by over-exposure to speakers of English. The old castle at the top of the town provides great views of mountains on one side and olive-covered hills on the other.
However, Antequera is most well-known for two things: The first consists of three fine prehistoric dolmens barely outside the town itself. The second is worth taking a taxi up and walking down if you have no car. This is the Torcal de Antequera, a mountain top covered with huge and wonderfully shaped rock outcrops. There is a visitors' centre here now and some excellent routes marked by different coloured paint on the rocks. There is plenty of time to do the red and the yellow and walk down in daylight to the town, stopping for some ice cold fino on the way.
