It's a huge shopping mall with a big supermarket, lots of specialiced shops, cinemas and restaurants. The building is interesting itself because it recreates a corn mill.

At night there are dozens of CD peddlars roaming the bars and restaurants of Torre del Mar looking for business. They carry thousands of cheap, burned CDs with them. They are by no means pushy, but if you take a look through their catalogue, you`re probably expected to make a purchase.
Unique Suggestions: In this case, the CD seller was from Sudan. In a last ditch effort to make a sale, he said I could take a picture of him with the CD and then get my money back if the CD didn`t work!
One of the CDs I bought was scratchy and he replaced it when I saw him the following day ;-)
This small light house is inland, near Av. Toré-Toré. It was built in 1930 and has 11 metres, but it isn't the first light house in town, otherwise it was erected in 1864 at other location. It has changed its place some times, till is current position at the seaside walk.
Este pequeño faro está tierra adentro, cerca de Toré-Toré. Fué vonstruido en 1930 y tiene 11 metros, pero no es el primer faro de la población, ya que éste fue construido en 1864 en otro lugar. Ha cambiado de posición algunas veces, hasta su definitivo emplazamiento en el paseo marítimo.
