Culture & Demographic information

The history of the city

The history of Torremolinos goes back thousands of years. In prehistory, 150,000 years ago the first signs of human presence in the area appear. Remains have been found as skulls, vessels, axes and arrows and other utensils in excavations carried out in the caves located in the well-known “Punta de Torremolinos”, next to the sea.

However, it is in the Neolithic when a greater presence appears. In this time humans began to cultivate the fields and practice livestock. Archaeologists have found remains of these settlements, which despite not being still fishing towns they were located in this zone by their natural wealth, abundant hunting and a good climate.

The first population as such in the municipality of Torremolinos today appeared in Roman times. Remains are still preserved, such as a pool plastered with coloured mosaics or a small necropolis with 23 Roman tombs. Although the greatest inheritance left by these ancestors was a road that bordered the coast and united the cities of Gades (Cádiz) and Malaca (Málaga). This road favoured commerce and the growth of the populations that settled throughout the Costa del Sol.

Throughout its history, the water that flows from the springs of the mountainous area of Málaga and its subsoil has played a fundamental role in the history of this city. From the Arab conquest, the first mills appeared that later would give the name with which today we know it. The Arabs knew how to take advantage of the aquifer treasure and built a total of 19 mills. Some of which we can still visit or find remains throughout the city.

The geographical disposition of the mills also traced the places of settlement and subsequent geographic and demographic expansion of Torremolinos over the centuries.

Do you need a bit more history?

Another element left by the Arab period is the well-known Torre de los Molinos. A defensive construction located at the end of the San Miguel street with two floors with windows for defenders and vigils that was built due to the numerous attacks of invaders from the north of Africa.

After the reconquest of the Christians of the Kingdom of Granada, Torremolinos was exposed to pirate attacks until the eighteenth century. In the first place, the Arab attacks halted the growth of the city. Later the English pirates, in a raid by Admiral George Rooke, set fire to and looted the houses and the mills, so that Torremolinos was practically destroyed. The problem of piracy led to the construction of Santa Clara Castle, which defended the coast with a battery of cannons.

During the nineteenth century, everything was completely rebuilt, including the mills. However, around 1923 the decline of the milling industry began and the city had to be converted. Little by little, hotels and premises focused on leisure and sun and beach tourism was built. The economy of the city burst from 1950 with the “tourist boom”. Torremolinos became the largest tourist centre on the Costa del Sol.

Until today it has been a symbol and emblem of debauchery, leisure and reference for a wide range of urban tribes and people of all types of sexual condition. The first topless beaches began to take place on its beaches and its pubs have been a pilgrimage mecca for tourists from all over Europe over these years.
