The Marquisate of the Peña de los Enamorados is a Spanish noble title created by King Carlos II in 1679 for Jerónimo Francisco de Rojas y Rojas, son of the 3rd Lord of the Peña de los Enamorados. Its name refers to the Peña de los Enamorados, located in the Andalusian municipality of Antequera, in the province of Malaga.

It is an 18th century Baroque style palace and country house with two floors. The façade has a monumental doorway, designed in the 18th century by the architect Juan Ruiz Florindo, carved in stone and emblazoned with the noble coat of arms. Above it there is a balcony that plays the compositional and decorative role of the attic of the altarpieces of the time, duplicating the pilasters of the lower part on a smaller scale and with the window covered by the traditional three-lobed arch.

It has a remarkable interior courtyard with columns and semicircular arches around which the rooms of the building are located.

It is not currently open to the public.
