It's said that this town of Axarquía, on the Eastern Costa del Sol, has "the best climate in Europe": here you can enjoy the sun, the outdoor lifestyle and the quiet beaches all year round. But Torrox has two souls: one on the coast, the other inland one, and it's in the latter where you'll find the history of Al Andalus. Torrox was the Muslim Turrush, homeland of Almansur. Its white streets preserve the Andalusí soul.
