Torremolinos - Spain



Learn Spanish in Spain


Torremolinos

Torremolinos is a city on Costa del Sol, west of the City of Malaga. Torremolinos was the first city that developed as a tourist destination on the Costa del Sol. Among the Spaniards Torremolinos is a myth. Holidays in Torremolinos started to become very popular in the 1950-60. Many travelled to Torremolinos on scooter from Madrid to experience the freedom that did not exist anywhere else in Spain. Torremolinos was a sort of free port at the time. Girls in bikini, party, bars and discos ....

Torremolinos is still a party place full of bars, restaurants and shops. Now there's even a conference palace in Torremolinos, which is widely used for national and international exhibitions, fairs and conferences. The beach in Torremolinos is full of small bars and "chiringuitos", beach restaurant, serving fried fish and the traditional 'paella'. Torremolinos is a city that barely sleeps. Torremolinos is sometimes criticized for how the shoreline has been built with skyscrapers, big hotels and residential buildings in the purest "Manhattan" style mixed with the domestic fishing village's unique features and character.

Torremolinos has four major business areas, including the area of El Calvario with traditional businesses, the business area El Pinillo, the historic city centre around Calle San Miguel that is known to be one of the most commercial streets in the south of Europe and of course the beach promenade Paseo Maritimo with typical sailors and fishermen’s neighborhoods La Carihuela and Bajondillo where you can eat the most delicious fried fish, fresh seafood and other delights.

What is true is that Torremolinos is a place with the Spanish holiday style, although it is somewhat exaggerated. Those who are looking for vacations, entertainment and nightlife will probably not be disappointed in Torremolinos.

Torremolinos has nine kilometers of fine sandy beaches. Torremolinos was once a small fishing village, before mass tourism arrived on Costa del Sol. If you want to see what is left of the original Torremolinos take a walk in the old part of the town, near the town hall and Casa de Cultura. There you will find narrow cobbled streets, typical Spanish balconies full of flowers and Spanish bars serving all kinds of tapas.

Torremolinos is an excellent place for shopping: Quality clothes, cheap leather goods, jewellery, crafts and gifts. Calle San Miguel is the heart of the shopping district in Torremolinos.  West of Torremolinos centre is the original fishermen's district La Carihuela. La Carihuela is where you find the very best seafood on Costa del Sol. In La Carihuela you also find a fantastic seafront promenade that stretches all the way to Benalmadena.
