Torremolinos, a legendary destination for international tourism since the 1950s, offers travellers a modern coastal town which retains the Andalusian charm of the old fishermen and miller’s village which it once was.
A key player in the 1960s tourism book, Torremolinos has huge beaches bathed by the blue waters of the Mediterranean, and mild climate all the year round, and an exquisite gastronomy. Its cosmopolitan and multicultural ambiance attracted many, including celebrities such as Brigitte Bardot and Frank Sinatra, who left their trace in history-laden spots.
A town internationally known for its open-mindedness, its freedom, and the change which revolutionised Spain from the 1960s. In fact, Torremolinos opened a time of freedom in Spain with the first gay venue in the Iberian Peninsula, the legendary Tony’s Bar, at a time when the town had no prejudices and promoted night life in the middle of Franco’s regime. This essence still remains in the town through such festivals as the Gay Pride Parade, with people from all over the world, the Drag Gala, and the Wonder Beach in the summer.
From the heart of the Costa del Sol, Torremolinos faces the sea and is protected by the mountains, offering sea experiences and light-filled pictures. The town is a strategic location to visit the most appealing corners of Andalusia.
It is much more than sun and beaches, with a natural environment in the Torremolinos mountains and trekking routes such as the “Water Way”, which goes from the centre of the town to the mountains, through caves, aquifers, and the main and oldest fountains in the municipality.
Locals are used to tourism, and welcome visitors with the kindness and hospitality of Southern people. Torremolinos throbs with love of life, with enjoyment of its historic spots such as the Pimentel Tower, a Muslim tower, the Casa de las Navajas, a neo-Mudéjar palace built in 1925 and declared to be of Historic Interest by the Culture Council by the Regional Government of Andalusia in 1991, or enjoying walking and shopping on the central San Miguel street.
The municipality sounds of water due to its traditional mills, which are currently in the Molino de Inca Botanical Garden and look great in the La Batería Park, a space for family leisure.
Torremolinos is a gastronomical Mecca for fried fish, tapas, and beer, for relaxing, for sardines in the traditional fishermen’s village of La Carihuela, and in each of the bars along the 7 km of the sea promenade.
Torremolinos is a dynamic town where there is always something to do, an event to enjoy, sports to do, and above all, Torremolinos is a place where, whatever happens, the sun always shines.
