Torremolinos is a city through which hundreds of famous people have passed. Spanish and from outside Spain, especially the great stars of the golden age of Hollywood. However, not only celebrities come from outside. Musical groups and artists of great fame have been born in Torremolinos.

In addition to Hollywood stars such as Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, Brigitte Bardot… We can present in this post the painter Horcio Tengo, the group Danza Invisibles and a few footballers from Torremolinos.

The most famous people from Torremolinos is Horacio Lengo Martínez

Horacio Lengo Martínez was born in Torremolinos in 1838 and died in Madrid in 1890. He was a Spanish painter from the Malaga school of painting. He studied in Cádiz, where he came into contact with the artistic world through Serafín Martínez del Rincón.

After travelling to Paris, where he was a disciple of León Bonnat. He participated in the exhibitions of 1875 and 1876 in Paris. He also presented his works at several national exhibitions in Spain in the 1880s.

During the first half of the 1880s he was a recognized painter, prolific and in which “his paintings were bought at a weight of gold”.

He committed suicide by hanging himself in his workshop in Madrid on July 3, 1890, because he was losing his sight.

He has been called “the painter of the turtledoves” or “the painter of the birds and flowers”.

Invisible Dance

Danza Invisible is a new wave music group. It is as one of the bands that were part of the renowned movida madrileña during the 1980s.

It is originally from Torremolinos and founded by Ricardo Texidó, with Chris Navas and Manolo Rubio in 1981. Antonio Gil was also part of the guitar section. Although the last one to join the project was Javier Ojeda. Because he replaced Ricardo Texidó as lead vocalist.

There are two stages in his musical career: the first is characterized by a more alternative and avant-garde sound, inspired by British groups such as Simple Minds, U2 and The Police, or Americans such as Talking Heads or Blondie. The second stage is characterised by a progressive approach to African, danceable and Caribbean music.

The vegetation in Torrox is conditioned by the best climate in Europe. Because Torrox has the best climate in Europe.

The lands of Torrox are mostly in the valley of the river of the same name. In the north they are narrowed with the valley flanked by the Coscoja mountains and the Rávita de Torrox. But then the municipality widens to extend into two other basins: the Seco river to the east and the Manzano stream to the west.

In addition, the proximity of the Almijara mountain range, as well as the Mediterranean Sea, means that temperatures in Torrox are moderate in both winter and summer.

A very important part of the municipality of Torrox enjoys a subtropical Mediterranean climate.

Vegetation in Torrox

The potential vegetation found in Torrox is that of a thermophilic oak grove which, together with the “Quercus suber” cork oaks, would form the climatic stage of Torrox.

However, due to the agricultural and livestock activity has led to the disappearance of these communities. Therefore, most of the municipality is currently made up of less evolved serial stages of lesser size and biodiversity such as jarales- bolinares and eriales.

There are a number of plant species in Torrox that are protected:
