Torrox (Málaga) has often been tagged the town with the "Best Weather in Europe" - and
being on the Costa Tropical, it may just be true.
Lying on the Mediterranean, midway between Málaga city and Almuñécar (Granada), this is a
fast-growing town largely due to the foreign population who have come to either visit or
live permanently. It is divided into the pueblo (2 km. inland), El Morche and Torrox
Costa on the coast.
Today Moorish architectural elements and Roman artifacts remain juxtaposed against
contemporary hi-rise apartment buildings, testament to an area with a foot in the
past but a view to the future. Although there is a strong sub-tropical fruit and
olive agricultural presence, tourism has become a major economic force here.
These fiestas patronales are complete with fairgrounds, rides, games, musical productions
and typical foods of the area. The Plaza de la Constitución is a particularly attractive
center of festivities.
