Torrox, 9 kilometres from Nerja on the N340, was a prosperous town during the Moorish period and played a pivotal role in the silk trade between Granada and Eastern cities such as Baghdad and Damascus. The town itself is built on a steep slope and is picturesque with its white-walled houses.. A few minutes away is the popular coastal resort of Torrox Costa. It is the site of the remains of a Roman necropolis and villa located immediately west of the lighthouse, El Faro. Being a tourist resort, there are numerous bars and restaurants of all types and some very nice beachfront merenderos.
