Torrox Costa is situated 47 kilometres east of Malaga on the coast, and Torrox Pueblo 2 kilometres inland and 125 metres above sea level. Torrox lies within the area of Axarquia, on the scenic Route of Sun and Wine, and has a population of 12,000 which increases with tourism during the summer months.
Torrox Pueblo has retained its white Moorish village structure with attractive narrow streets and a main square which is a lively and focal meeting place. Much of the town has beautiful views down to the coast. There was once a Moorish castle on the top of the hill on which the village now stands where, it is claimed, King Almanzor was born in the 10th century. During Islamic occupation, Torrox prospered in agriculture and the silk trade. 16tth century buildings include the Mudejar style church of Nuestra Senora de la Encarnacion and the shrine and Convent of the Virgen de las Nieves.
Torrox Costa has two splendid maritime promenades with attractive restaurants and bars and 9 kilometres of wide sandy beaches. To the east of the town, alongside the lighthouse, the new `Balcon de Torrox´ has been constructed as a lookout to the sea and headlands and with transparent flooring looking down on Roman remains below.
