The Botanical Garden Molino de Inca is a perfect place to let your imagination fly and forget about all your daily problems. The sound of water and the history of the botanical garden, closely linked to our mills, will make it a perfect visit. There are almost a thousand different types of plants, with a great variety of palm trees and a dozen different types of birds. In our greener area, the water and the sound of its small waterfalls and fountains will stay with you. Stop to take some pictures at the natural labyrinth in the centre of the botanical and in the Japanese garden, share them on Instagram and of course, enjoy your visit.
Parque de la Batería is another recommended visit during your weekend, especially if you come with children as it´s one of the kids favourite in Torremolinos. The park is well-connected, right next to Montemar Alto train station. There are several interesting sites at the park. Enjoy the boat ride on the artificial lake and fall in love with the views from Torre Mirador, you can climb the stairs or use the lift. Either way,climb to the top, about 15 meters high, breathe and enjoy the coast of Torremolinos.
Let time go by on the Venetian Carousel, at the bottom of the park and take a quiet walk through the enclosure.
After the park, we recommend to take a long walk along the promenade to enjoy the view of the sea. Go to one of the coffee shops or ice cream parlours along the way and give yourself a treat.
When you get to el El Bajondillo, look out for “La Casa de los Navajas” facing the sea, overlooking the coast, guardian of thousands of people passing by. The palace dates from 1925, located on a cliff, built in “neomudéjar” style. The entrance is free and it opens every day. We know you won´t regret it.
After visiting “La Casa de los Navajas”, you deserve a rest. You can go to the central San Miguel street and stop at La Bodega or in Guerola to eat something. After the well-deserved rest, how about some shopping? San Miguel Street and its surroundings are the shopping centre of Torremolinos where you can find traditional shops with a special charm and also the large chains of clothing and accessories. Do not leave Torremolinos without visiting this special street and without a souvenir.
We also recommend to stop at Cuesta del Tajo and enjoy the majesty of “Torre Pimentel” tower, which gives our city its name, “the Tower of Mills”. If you want to know a little more, visit this post.
