Torrox, Costa del Sol, Spain

A quaint historical town, more sedate than it's lively neighbour of Nerja.


With the sea at your back, you'll see an impressive landscape rising up from the coast into the foothills of the Sierra de Almijara mountain range. Vineyards and olive groves blanket the slopes, dotted with whitewashed villages like Torrox.
