It costs only €1 or free on a Monday, to visit this attraction in the centre of La Cala. Many people walk right past but it really is worth a visit. You can go round this historic 'museum' as quickly or slowly as you wish....More

We have round towers in Ireland and Spain has them as castles, it is interesting to visit a place and find out some of its' history and you can do this in the Torreon as well as take fabulous pictures from the top battlement.

This refurbished tower stands proudly on the La Cala de Mijas Plaza. A reminder of troubled times and marauding pirates it is now a must climb viewpoint for the village and glorious beach. Tourist info available there too

We found it boring and not very interesting. Lots of cigarette buts thrown around and as seems usual in la Cala, a number of dogs running around not on a leach and soiling the area.
