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.

Visited here - cant understand the negative reviews, some people have no brains. Arrived here and as you would expect from a small watchtower / fortress it's not that big so it's a quick visit. Interesting video introduction explaining the history behind the building. You...More

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.

Only €1 per person and all for a good cause. This is an interesting piece of Spanish coastal history with a small museum area, gift shop, short video and great views from the open top floor.

Well worth a visit to the little town on Saturday when the MARKET is on and I would recommend a visit to this Museum. Just catch the 220 bus from the bus station in Fuengirola. to Cala De Mijas.
