A hidden gem surrounded by shops selling all sorts of different items. It’s a shame that it has not been preserved properly, you can’t get near as it is not safe so I wonder why they don’t make it safe?

I only noticed this after being online looking for things in the area. The Tower is derelict, surrounded by gift shops. It's a shame that something of such historical importance has been neglected.

This is a great 14th century tower situated at the bottom of Calle San Miguel. Unfortunately Torremolinos Ayuntamiento is either unwilling or unable to allow anyone to get near it. Furthermore views are obscured by buildings so you can't even get a decent look at...More

A landmark of the past. Easy acces and interesting to discover. There should more info dedicated to tourist to explain what it was in the past.

As this tower is supposedly what gave Torremolinos it's name, it is such a shame you can't get to it! You can see some of it from behind the cheap and nasty shops. On the steps or from the beach road you can see it...More
