New Year In Torremolinos

by lizaneck

Hi there,

We will be going to Torremolinos for a week from the 31st December 2005,
can anyone recommend any good bars and eating places that will be open there or in the surrounding area at that time of the year.

Thank you.

Hello,
I was in Torremolinos at Easter a long time ago but I have to tell you that it is a touristic city with full of life and bars. I think you will not have any problem to find bars that are open at that time of the year. And the food, I am sure, will be tasty and delicious: fresh fried fish, paellas... And you will find lots of pubs that after 12 will celebrate the coming of New Year. Some of them, perhaps, will have private parties but most of them are opened for everybody. I suppose that your hotel will make a New Year's party.
Of course, don't forget a Spanish tradition for that moment: to eat 12 grapes at 12 o'clock (one for each month of the coming year). It will bring you lots of luck!
Regards

Travel Tips for Torremolinos

PIMENTEL TOWER - TORRE DE PIMENTEL

Known locally as the 'Torre Vigia', the TORRE DE PIMENTEL is the town's namesake and was built in the 14th century as part of the area's defense system and is also a lookout point. The staircase can be climbed and from the top, offering superb panoramic views of the coastline.
Open to the public with free admission.

SUNDAYS -- FLEA MARKET IN ESTEPONA

by LoriPori

Sunday, March 25, 2001
As we were looking for something to do on a cloudy, rainy Sunday afternoon, I found out that there was a flea market in ESTEPONA. It was quite a long drive, but it was all along the coast, going west from Torremolinos.
Estepona is a small fishing village that conserved its original character extraordinarily well. There were several little restaurants that catered to the many British tourists that we saw there.

Restaurante los Manueles

by keeweechic

The Restaurante or Chiringuito is reported to be one of the best beach bars in Torremolinos. There are two stories to the restaurant but usually the top floor is only opened at night. The seafood is reasonably priced and good with the ever popular sardines being served. The restaurant is open from 10.30am through to midnight.

Old 'guard-rails' and foot paths

by Bwana_Brown

This view was taken as we were almost at the pass leading to Ventas de Zaffarayus, just through the gap. What caught my eye were the old-style concrete blocks used for guardrails along this stretch of highway. They reminded me of rectangular stone ones we had seen in northern Portugal five years earlier on a drive near the Spanish border - except several of those ones had been knocked over by collisions!

If you look more closely at the photo, you can barely make out a narrow track running across both sides of the gorge. The 2nd photo shows a closer look at the right side of the gorge as we drove through - the path appears to be an old track of some sort but I don't really know what it was used for. With this area having been settled since before Roman times, it is no surprise that relics of human activity like these still survive on these mountain slopes, at a height of about 2800-ft above sea level at this location.

When we finally did pull into Ventas de Zaffarayus, there was not much going on in the small community, so we kept on driving. However, we were then in a broad valley with rolling hills of olive groves as we continued onward.

Jardín Botánico "Molino de Inca" a hidden gem.

by Regina1965

Jardín Botánico Molino de Inca is the state-owned botanical garden in Torremolinos. It is one of two most important monuments in Torremolinos due to its windmills and pure natural spring water. Torremolinos translates as "The windmill tower", due to all the windmills in this area in earlier times. It was said that the best flour was made in Torremolinos. The mill here in the garden was built in 1700 and is said to be the center piece of Torremolinos. It is still working and is now a museum. I have been here many times and only visited it in 2009, so this is kind of a hidden gem at the very outskirt of Torremolinos, further north you cannot go or you will hit the motor way.

It is a very lovely decorative garden with many lovely statues and a fountain, ponds and streams. You will find statues all over the garden. The most famous one is The four seasons showing all directions. There are also 2 statues of lions which guard the water.

This being a botanical garden then you will find palms and trees from all over the world. I am a sucker for botanical gardens and have visited many and saw there species I have never seen before. There are also lots of cages with interesting birds all over the garden.

Note that it is closed for siesta, which I didn´t know, so I was just walking slowly taking in all this beauty and then was going to sit down and have something to eat and continue on another tour of the garden. Then I found out that I was closed in. A guard let me out and then left himself. The opening hours are: summer time 11:30-13:30 and then again 18-21. Winter time 10:30-13:30 and 16-18. It is closed on Mondays though. It seems like botanical gardens are closed on Mondays in Spain, the botanical garden in Malaga is also closed on Mondays.

The entrance fee is 3 euros.
