The Phoenicians were the first to arrive on these shores to trade however the Romans were who founded the city. It was located where nowadays the light house is and its name was Caviclum. The Romans stay here from the century I to the V. Later came the Visigoths but the Muslim conquered this territory in the century VIII. Torrox was an important city that belonged to the Caliphate of Cordoba. Torrox produced silk, sugar cane, figs and raisins of excellent quality for the export. They built a fort to defender the area. In 1488 the Catholics conquered the city and expulsed the Muslim and the area was almost depopulated. In 1570 the Catholics Kings gave this land to the Christians to avoid this depopulation. During the time of Napoleon (1810-1812), the French occupied the castle that the Muslims had built. When they lost the war of independence they destroyed this castle leaving only its ruins. Another historical episode was a strong earthquake in December 1884 that left much damage in the city, for this reason the king Alfonso XIII visited the city.

But if there’s one of Torrox’s favorite sons, it’s Almanzor. A powerful Muslim warlord. Compared to the Cid Champion. He was born in Torrox approximately in 938 and died in Medinaceli in 1002. Hayib de Córdoba (978-1002). He was a descendant of an Arab family from Yemen established in the region of Algeciras since the Muslim conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. He studied in Cordoba and, during the caliphate of al-Hakam II, held important administrative posts, such as director of the mint (967) or mayor of General Galib’s army (972). In 976, the premature death of al-Hakam II placed Hisam II, a boy only eleven years old, at the head of the Caliphate of Córdoba. So Almanzor took over the reins of power. That same year he was appointed guardian of the young caliph, with the help of his mother, Subh. Two years later, in 978, after having turned Hisam II into a political puppet and postponed such influential figures as al-Mushafi and Galib. Almanzor had himself named hayib or prime minister, a dignity that allowed him to exercise absolute authority over the entire Hispano-Muslim territory. His first decision was to expel the Slavic mercenaries from the Caliphate army and replace them with Berbers. This measure gave him enormous popularity. He also made a deep restructuring of his troops in order to put an end to their tribal organization.
