information about Torrox

Travelling 46 km to the east of Málaga we discover Torrox, which is reputed to have the best climate in Europe. There are two distinct areas of Torrox, Torrox Costa which boasts 3 km of beach front with a beautiful Paseo Marítimo to stroll along and Torrox Pueblo, 4 km up the hill, which like all the pueblos blancos of the Axarquía, has retained its Moorish heritage with steep winding streets and archways.

Torrox Costa has a lighthouse (Faro) and next to it is a Roman Necropolis which is now protected by a lookout point with a glass floor so that you can see the graves without disturbing them. Even if you didn't realize there was anything of interest to see under the floor this mirador stretches out to the sea and is an interesting place to visit in its own right. The Paseo Marítimo has lots of bars and chiringuitos and is a great place to catch the rays even on a winter day. Torrox is part of the Axarquía route of Sun and Wine and on the last Sunday before Christmas it holds its Migas Fiesta. If you have never sampled migas before then this is the time to take your first taste. It’s a traditional dish for harvest workers and is made from stale bread, olive oil, water and garlic and any leftover meat available. During this festival the dish is cooked in large frying pans throughout the village and whilst waiting to eat you can listen to music and watch the locals dancing in the village square.

The Mudejar style church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación can be found in the centre of the village and as with most churches it is so huge that it's difficult to see the bell tower without bending over backwards. Although if you stand in the main square opposite the town hall you can just catch a glimpse of the bell tower to your right.

On the way out of the village down to the coast there is a large Ermita y Convento Nuestra Señora de las Nieves which was constructed in the 18thcentury and was founded by the Friars of the Order of San Francisco. As well as being used for religion it was also a storeroom for fruit.
