This year, I visited torremolinos again. I have gone from many years to torremolinos cause it´s got a lovely weather and it´s a small town so you can walk and see everything.
In San miguel street,the main activity of there is if you wanna go shopping.
You can find from clothes, jewelry, custom jewelery, shoes, gift shops...
Always i go i shop a lot in the store of joyeria deluxe cause they have got good prices and a huge selection in brand watches.
For restaurants i recomend the area of fuengirola they have great restaurants.
And if you wanna visit cathedrals in the area of malaga.
This is the main shopping street in Torremolinos. It's known as Europe Street by the locals due to the fact that this is where the holidaymakers head to, but this pedestrianized street is also a popular shopping area for Spaniards.
On this occasion, we weren't looking to shop, but instead were looking for the tea shops to enjoy afternoon tea - L'Epanta (No 54) was the place that we chose-See my Restaurant tips. We returned here again later-This time, there was a party of 10 VTers who enjoyed the ambiance and the goodies on offer.
Calle San Miguel was one of the areas that received a face lift during the renovation programme.
A nice place to wander along. The flooring is quite attractive with terracotta tiles and inlaid patterns with lighter coloured tiles.
We'll return here later during the tour....
Calle San Miguel is a busy pedestrian area of Torremolinos and really the heart of the old quarter of the town. It begins at the Pimentel Tower through to the Costa del Sol Plaza. There is all kinds of shopping in this street – great clothing, jewellery, shoe shops, gifts and of course restaurants and cafes.
The main shopping street in Torremolinos is Calle San Miguel, and it is often called "Calle Europe" by locals because all the tourists visiting Torremolinos go there. It is named after Torrmolinos's patron saint Archangel San Miguel (see my tip in local customs).
Calle San Miguel is in the older part of Torremolinos, so visitors staying at hotels on the beach will have to climb a lot of stairs to reach this shopping street (see my tips on steps and lifts to Calle san Miguel). There are lots of restaurants, cafés and all kinds of shops in the street, making for a fun walk and it can get very crowded at times. Calle San Miguel takes you through the most lively part of the center of Torremolinos with streets, shopping alleys, bars and beautiful squares with fountains and statues at every turn.
I refer to my previous tip on the steps leading to Calle San Miguel and the city center of Torremolinos. As the city center of Torremolinos is situated on a hill there is no way around the steps but the lift, given that you are coming from the Paseo Maritimo. Turn right, coming from the Malaga side, at the sign "Subida Torremolinos Centro" and "Calle San Miguel Iglesia" (see the photo included) and follow the passageway with a lot of shops. Instead of turning left for the steps, go straight ahead and up a flight of stairs leading you to the lift. The fee is 50 cents and it takes you straight to Calle Las Mercedes and from there is a very short walk on your left to Calle San Miguel. Turn right on Calle San Miguel shopping street and there you are - in the old city center of Torremolinos with all its shops and restaurants and cafés and bars.
From the Bajondillo beach there are a lot of steps leading to Calle San Miguel, which is the main shopping street in Torremolinos and leads you straigth to the center of Torremolinos. Walking along the Paseo Maritimo, coming from the Malaga side, take a right turn at the sign "Subida Torremolinos Centro" and "Calle San Miguel Iglesia" and follow the passageway with a lot of shops. At the very beginning it doesn't look like much, but take a left turn for the steps or walk straight up to the lift (see my next tip). These steps have different names but will lead you up to Calle San Miguel. If you are fit enough it is fun taking the steps having a look inside the small shops, of which there are many along the way. There are also some restaurants along the steps. But take care if it is raining as the steps can get quite slippery.
