Places in Spain - Torrox on the Costa del Sol, Andalucia

 

Located 47km east of Malaga, within Andalucia and part of the Costa del Sol, Torrox has as little as 12,000 inhabitants but this figure swells during the summer months. Torrox centre is 4km from the coast and is dedicated to tourism, mainly with Germans in mind. It has several other small, coastal districts surrounding the centre. The nearby mountains are covered by vineyards and olive trees, although in recent years, glasshouses have been installed in great numbers.

Even though Torrox has Neolithic origins, it was once an important Roman factory city. Extensive ruins here have been discovered and restored, such as the thermal baths, a luxury villa and a necropolis.

Most of the village is of Muslim origin and evidence of this can be found, such as the city walls and a tower. Its white-washed houses and gardens descend from the mountains down to the sea and there are 9km of fine, sandy beaches, several of which have been awarded the blue flag.

 

 
Torrox boasts an agreeable climate where the temperature averages no more than 30º in the summer and the winters are mild. The town consists of two parts, the upper village nestling in the mountains with its Moorish influence and the lower village, near the sea, reflecting a Roman origin. The area presents various Roman ruins, representing 2000 years of history as well as more modern sites such as the Convent of the 16th century and the imposing Parish Church of the 18th century. The area has a good tourist infrastructure of hotels, apartments and restaurants and offers a wide variety of sporting facilities.
