Torrox may seem to be a small village along Costa del Sol but those who have visited it know that this quaint village packs a punch. It is only 40 kilometers away from Malaga and 5 kilometers off Nerja. Torrox would be an ideal holiday destination for those who want a quiet and tranquil holiday.

Being small, Torrox may not be very noticeable on the map. It has a small population of several thousand which may not be notable but anyone discovering it by accident would enjoy this village thoroughly. Torrox offers an authentic Andalusia life along the Costa del Sol., it may just be the destination of choice.

Attractions

Getting to Torrox from Malaga is easy for tourists who fly into Malaga. One can head to Granada’s Sierra Nevada for some fantastic skiing with a 2-hour drive or visit the Rock of Gibraltar.

Torrox lies between Torrox Costa and Torrox Pueblo. With more tourists being attracted to the village’s serene offerings, more developments are coming on over the nearby towns such as resorts and modern amenities.

There are different holiday attractions with plenty of beach activities, resorts and village life options.

Torrox Pueblo offers a quaint atmosphere with its whitewashed houses along the hillside just like snow hanging precariously from any tree branch. This is typical of any Andalusia village; townhouses are adorned with plenty of flowers along narrow, winding streets.

The labyrinth of cobbled streets may prove challenging to some tourists as there are not many street names for reference; one might end up going in circles.

Ancient influence

The village displays distinct Moorish influence from the 7th century with many Moorish methods on agriculture and irrigation with land terracing that still exist today. The land is fertile for an assortment of vegetables and fruits which are commonly sold fresh in the village.

Street corners are adorned with illustrative ceramic tiles depicting Moorish occupation events. These can be obvious through a leisurely Almanzor walk from the Constitution plaza through the village via main historical buildings like the Baroque-style Incarnacion church and Mudejar-style Nuestra Senora Nieves chapel that goes as far as 16th century.

There are many quaint ancient monument remnants around the village which would be worthy of checking out to help guests understand better the culture and traditions that are still being practiced today. Torrox is indeed likened to a gem that is tucked away at a corner waiting to be discovered.
