The Bil bil

It is very beautiful but doesn't seem to have a function apart from the main building. Lovely church services there every Sunday

Worth a visit. Beautiful castle right on the sea. You can walk from the marina but it's quite a walk. Or get the tour bus and stop off there and get a later bus back

lovely spot for a walk but I have never been able to get into the church. It looks stunning! nice to sit and people watch in the evening time and then stroll down the to the beach front to chose one of the many bars and restaurants.

A bit like going to the village hall, but with nicer external architecture. Very little to see unless you are attending a function

As you walk across the promenade you come across this building - and it is well worth taking a break from your walk to have a look inside. It is a cool respite from the heat outside and very nice inside to explore. When we were there , no fee to enter but donations accepted.

This is more of a large mosque at the edge of the beach. Surrounded by relatively small wall I couldn't imagine it being called a castle as such, but has a pleasant cool interior and nice tiling and plasterwork that are pretty modern. There is a comprehensive list of things that you are not allowed to do / bring into... More

A beautiful walk from here and ended up the other side of Torremolinos. Bars, shops and restaurants. leisurely walk way and the Belamadena Marina on route. You don't realise how far you've walked until the legs give in. A must do.
