Torre almenara al fondo en playa del Rincón de la Victoria

Rincón de la Victoria is a municipality in the eastern part of the Costa del Sol with nine kilometres of beaches and a wide range of tourist activities. Its subtropical climate and lively seaside promenade are enough to make you want to take a trip to the Mediterranean at any time of year and enjoy an unforgettable stay by the sea.

Situated at the entrance to the Axarquía region, Rincón de la Victoria has a fascinating cultural heritage and sensational gastronomy. If you want to discover both, visit the four towns of La Cala del Moral, Rincón de la Victoria, Torre de Benagalbón, on the coastal strip, and Benagalbón, inland.




The Casa-Fuerte de Bezmiliana is the most emblematic monument in Rincón de la Victoria. This fort was built from 1766 onwards to defend the area from pirate attacks. Nowadays it is used as an exhibition space. A wall with two watchtowers, a central building and a covered well on the outside are the main parts of this squared-shaped complex.

Rincón de la Victoria is home to the only sea grotto that can be visited in the whole of Europe: Cueva del Tesoro. Its passages were formed below sea level from the impact of currents and waves over time. As well as columns, gorges, stalactites and stalagmites, this amazing grotto features remnants of cave paintings. According to legend, the cave was chosen by an Almoravid emperor as a hiding place for treasure.

Along the coastline, you can observe the defensive buildings known as torres almenaras (beacon towers), including Torre del Cantal and Torre de Benagalbón. Dating back to the 14th century, both are shaped like a conical trunk. They were used to protect the coast from enemy invasions.

History enthusiasts will be glad to discover an interesting Roman site in Torre de Benagalbón. The most important archaeological remains are in the village, including a hot spring and garum factory (a famous sauce made with fish and herbs).

The Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Carmen in Rincón de la Victoria and the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria in Benagalbón are the most notable religious monuments in the municipality. The latter was built in the 11th century.

Near the Iglesia de la Candelaria, you"ll find the Museo de Artes Populares. This museum has a display of a traditional farmhouse, as well as objects and tools that the local population once used in their daily life.
