“my street of friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

after my early morning coffee at a tapas bar near the bottom of the street my next stop is the patisserie on the corner to sample the fruit tarts. some of the shop keepers are still mopping their section of pavement and your always greeted with a smile and ola every small shop just seems to want your attention and you always find something you missed the previous day. the chemist is a must to browse the array of scents available ,the alleys off are just shouting browse me with an array of Spanish dress for kiddies, upwards to the junction where an abundance of cafes await your presence. having sampled yet more coffee watched the world go by it upwards to the top of the street where some lovely shops of quality abound a quick Buenos dias to the little lottery seller and you know you have returned to the spain you love.i then turn left and browse yet more delights at the little street behind san Miguel usualiy ending up in the same store ive just been in .I love it and do it every morning and have made some great friends over the years.

“shopping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

It was fun, travel up on the lift and walk and shop on the way back down . A lot of steps , some of the steps are slopes so be carefully

“Manic street”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Manic place but a must see just for the atmosphere. Careful crossing the streets, the drivers are MAD. Don't forget to haggle with the street venders ( they don't put prices up for that reason)

“good selection of shops and a couple of traditional bars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

This is the main pedestrianised street going up through the centre of Torremolinos. Avoid it if you are not a shopper! We normally go up here a couple of times, although we don't stay in this part of Torremolinos. There are a lot of good shops including my favourite Spanish chain store for women's fashion - Stradovarius. There are also a lot of small side streets off this one, with more shops. There is a lovely traditional Spanish tapas bar on this street that does fabulous garlic prawns (gambas al ajillo) and good quality rioja wine. - doesnt look much from the outside, look for the two barrels at the entrance - only open during the day. Well worth a visit.

“Just love it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Every time I come here I can find something I like and some of the shops change owners regularly. I am a frequent visitor to Torremolinos, so much nicer and safer than Benidorm where my room was burgled last year.
