The Pimentel Tower is not an obvious attraction and there is no access to it . It stands as a sturdy and powerful reminder of bygone days in Torremolinos. It stands proudly at the top of the famous San Miguel steps. linking the town to the Bajondillo beach. Surrounded by modern bars and restaurants it provides a nostalgic glimpse of... More
