If you go by the old road from Malaga to Almeria, on the section from Torrox Costa to Nerja there is a rock by the sea, that for some has become a sort of sanctuary. Some niches have been excavated in the rock and hold an image of the Virgen del Carmen (patron saint of sailors) and Christ, the Christ of love. Residents lay flowers and light candles, the groundswell frames this curious rock.

Of Cultural Interest in Torrox
The Lighthouse
(2)
This beautiful lighthouse is located on the coastal municipality of Torrox (Málaga). The construction divided the two nearest beaches of Nerja and is next to the remains of a castle destroyed during the War of Independence. Construction began in 1860, and the lighthouse began operating in 1864. Over the years, the lighthouse has undergone several modifications for the sake of art, but its basic white cylindrical construction of a house with a red roof continues to put a romantic note on the place and make it ideal for witnessing the beautiful sunrises and sunsets of this coast.
Historical Monuments in Torrox
Calaceite Watchtower
(2)
The Calaceit Tower is another of the watchtowers found in Torrox Costa. It was built in the fifteenth century, and was used to protect the population from constant pirate attacks. It is located three kilometers from Torrox and is forty meters tall. Although it was declared a cultural site, it still shows no signs of restoration, although a portion of the retaining wall that backs onto the road has been locked to prevent the collapse of stones on it. Because of its location, the view is spectacular and you can see the Mediterranean on a clear day.

Churches in Torrox
Santiago El Mayor Church
(1)
The Church of Santiago El Mayor was built in 1947, with the collaboration of all local residents through donations or helping in the construction itself. This was due to the fact that this part of town had no church, and neighbors who wanted to go to worship had to move go to the Navas church nearby. Hernandez, a local, donated 500 pesetas for its construction. As many people wanted to have their own church, they helped with the construction, working for free. Some made the mixture of lime and sand, others helped to build it. The temple opened in the 50s, being the tallest building in the Morche. The church is modern and quite conservative, with nice side windows.

Vilchez Beach
(2)
This quite wide black sand beach, is located in the area of the Torrox Costa, off the old N-340. It makes a small bend like a cove, and the sea here is almost always calm. The municipalities of Torrox and Nerjade have proposed to convert this beach into a Puerto Deportivo, which would have about 500 berths. The project is pending, waiting the approval of an environmental impact study by the Provincial Delegation of Environment.

Bunny Roundabout

This roundabout connects Torrox with Torrox Costa. It's located on the N-240 and you can take the option to head up the coast via exit 285 and the A7 motorway, to continue towards Nerja.
Beaches in Torrox
Mazagarrobo Beach
Mazagarrobo Beach or Tajo de la Virgen is on the Old road N-340, along with Penoncillo and Calaceit beaches, which are separated from each other by rocks. The beach is usually pretty lonely compared to others, I guess it must be the lack of services such as a snack bar. It is about 1.5 km long and 20 meters wide, although the sand isn't fine and golden the water is always clean and crystalline. To get there by bus take the Intercity from Malaga to Nerja.
