TorroxTorrox is an authentic Andalucian white village, still untouched by tourist development. Here you can truly appreciate the Spanish way of life and have unmatched mountain and sea views. In Torrox you can find popular architecture such as the Moorish Quarter and wine and raisin presses and interesting industrial architecture such as the Sugar Factory.

Torrox is an ideal base for exploring this fascinating region with its mountains, national parks, and famous old towns. Local activities include hiking in the local countryside, horseriding in the Sierras or touring the local villages to sample their wines and cuisine. There are Roman ruins all along the coast and the caves at Nerja for those with sightseeing in mind. The ruins of the Roman Village at the Torrox Lighthouse are protected as a Property of Cultural Interest. The National Hunting Reserve of the Sierras Tejada and Almijara are closeby, and the famous Alhambra Palace, Granada and skiing in the Sierra Nevada are also within easy reach.
