A place of settlement of the oldest civilizations in the Mediterranean, Torremolinos is today one of the Costa del Sol's prime destinations. The excellent coastline, combined with the pleasant climate, are just some of the attractions this Andalusian town offers.
History has bequeathed Torremolinos corners of profound local flavour, such as the seafarers' district of La Carihuela, as well as a great many vestiges of it rich past, among them the town's Keep. Over the year, the town enjoys every one of its traditional fairs, festivals and pilgrimages to the full. The local cuisine cannot be ignored, with “pescaíto” frito (fried fish) as the star attraction.
