    Moorish plan - Trazado musulman

    A narrow street - Una calle estrecha

    Like most of the villages in the region Torrox has Arabic origins with a labyrinth of narrow streets of white washed houses radiating up and out from the main square. Buy houses are neither as pretty as in Frigiliana and nor as traditional. Any way it worth a visit if you can deep yourself into a real Andalusian city.

    Como la mayoría de los pueblos de la comarca Torrox tiene orígenes árabes con laberínticas calles estrechas de casas blanqueadas en forma desembocando en una plaza principal. Pero las casas ni son tan bonitas como en Frigiliana ni son tan tradicionales. De todas maneras merece una visita si quieres sumergirte en una verdadera ciudad andaluza.

    Small altars - Pequeños altares

    An altar - Un altar

    There are some altars with Virgin images and small religious pictures of Saints in old town. They have been placed there by people who pray and who wish that other people will pray to them too and ask to any necessity. Anyone could look after this images putting here a flower, a candle or giving a donation. This one is a piety (the Virgin Mary with Jesus Christ already dead).

    En el casco antiguo hay pequeños altares con imágenes de la Virgen y estampas de Santos. Han sido puestos por personas que les rezan y desean que la gente pueda hacerle alguna petición especial. Cualquiera puede cuidarlas poniendo alguna flor, una vela o haciendo una donación. Este es una piedad (la Virgen María con Jesucristo ya muerto).
