Travel Tips for Torremolinos

Feria Virgen del Carmen - La Carihuela.

by Regina1965

From the 15th-18th of July is the Feria Virgen del Carmen at La Carihuela beach in Torremolinos. This is a very big event for sailors as she is the patron saint of the sea. Carmen is another name for virgin Mary. This is a ceremony where the statue of Carmen is carried out of the church in La Carihuela "Parroquia Intra. Sra. del Carmen" in the street of Calle Carmen. The ceremony starts at 19:00 o´clock in front of the church and we started waiting there ca 1,5 hours earlier. There were big crowds in the narrow street and the police showed us so we were almost too friendly with the people standing next to us, glued together like sardines in a can. Everybody "important" person in Torremolinos was present at the ceremony and of course various TV-networks.

The statue of Carmen was carried out of the church by navy rookies (please correct my English if this is not the right term for it), some of them barefoot and one of them was blindfolded, as a way to condone for their sins. They carried the statue of Carmen in a big procession down to the beach of La Carihuela right by the rock and put it on a platform there. That took ca 1,5 hours. We waited on the beach where there was a ceremony, talks and singing. Then the statue was carried once more to a boat on the ocean with a lot of boats surrounding it honking their "horns". It was a beautiful sight seeing the boat with the statue of Carmen sailing away all lit up in the dark followed by a lot of decorated boats. Later on it returned and the statue of Carmen was carried to the church again. Seeing that I come from an island where fishery is the most important industry it was a very touching ceremony.

This ceremony takes place along the whole coast of the Málaga-area.

Washed Down With Sangria

by keeweechic

Dinner was tapas followed by Red Snapper, washed down with Sangria and followed with Venetta ice cream. By the comments of those around me, all the meals were good. The service was friendly and speedy.

The Gorge - Ronda has some competition!

by Bwana_Brown

It was by coincidence that we visited Ronda on December 24, with Christmas Eve in the offing and made it to Alhama de Granada on New Year's Day. Even though it was about 1 PM when we drove into AdG there was virtually no traffic at all (unlike Ronda) and we had no problem negotiating the streets to find a large free parking area almost beside the gorge.

We made the short walk to a viewing area beside the gorge cut by the Alhama river but, unfortunately, the weak winter sun was beaming directly down the gorge at us, making it difficult to get decent photos of the quite impressive spectacle. The gorge makes a right-angle turn where we were standing (2nd photo), so the view in the new direction was not so affected by the sun (3rd photo). We really enjoyed our time just taking in the entire scene - it was much more relaxed than at Ronda. Although both gorges are spectacular, the one at Ronda probably comes out on top because it's gorge has a very impressive bridge across it. In addition, the gorge actually ends at the bridge, providing a beautifully wide view out over a large valley with distant mountains.

Still, Alhama de Granada ranks right up there and is well worth a detour if you ever get the chance.

Casa de los Navajas (House of Navajas (Knives)

by suvanki

Day 3, and awoke to blue skies and less cloud - Hoorah!
Standing on the balcony, the Moorish house as I called it, was bathed in sunlight

This is the Casa de los Navajas (House of Navajas (Knives), which was built for Antonio Navajas Ruiz (of the wealthy Luque Navajas family) in 1925. The architect was Francisco Fernández Fermina. The architectural fashion of the time was for the Arabic-Andalusian neomudéjar style, and some of the interior was apparently inspired by the Alhambra Palace in Granada.

In 1991, this 2 storied house was officially recognised as having historical importance, and it has been managed by the local council since July 2000.

It appeared to be empty, apart from the many feral cats that seemed to have taken over the grounds. Some of these cats had deformities, either accidental or congenital.

The entrance gate appeared to be permanently locked, and by the amount of greenery growing on the steps, these weren't used much. However it is illuminated at night.

It's a shame that this place isn't put to better use than a feline squat - with its stunning appearance and location (overlooking the sea) I'm surprised that it hasn't been turned into a luxury Spa or wedding venue etc. Though I suppose the concrete buildings encircling it might not be condusive to the ambiance!
