Monuments and museums in Torre del Mar

Although frequently visited by tourists, Torre del Mar doesn’t have monuments and museums like other neighboring towns. However, since Velez-Malaga is just 5km away, you’ll need no more than 12 minutes to get to the historical sites found there.

Here are some of the monuments in the market town of Velez-Malaga:



Palace of El Marques de Beniel - This magnificent palace was once owned by one of the King’s counselors and passed down from generation to another until it came into the possession of the first Marques de Beniel.

Church of Nuestra Senora de la Encarnacion - This Gothic-Muldejar inspired architectural masterpiece was built on top of a mosque.

La Casa Cervantes - This building was once the home of the great Spanish playwright, Miguel de Cervantes de Saavedra. If that name doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps “Don Quixote”, one of the most outstanding works of modern Western literature, should refresh your memory.



Iglesia de San Juan Bautista - Highlighted by an imposing octagonal tower, this 16th century church is one of the most noticeable monuments near Torre del Mar. Like the Church of Nuestra Senora de la Encarnacion, this building features a Gothic-Muldehar architectural design.

Remnants of an Arab fort - Located in the upper outskirts of Velez-Malaga, these ruins are all that remains of what was once a Moorish fortress. From this site, you can enjoy a fantastic view of the surrounding landscape.

Now, after visiting all those monuments and you still have much time to spare, we suggest you grab the opportunity to take a 37 minute drive to Malaga. It’s where you’ll find well-respected establishments like:
