Lighthouse at Torrox Costa

Lighthouse at Torrox Costa, Spain

The lighthouse at Torrox Costa is approximately 50 kms to the east of the city of Málaga.

This stretch of coastline has bamboo fringed beaches and is immediately east of the “Balcon de Torrox“, constructed as a lookout to the sea and headlands, with transparent flooring looking down on the Roman necropolis unearthed beneath.

I particularly like the contrast of the white-painted lighthouse against the clear, blue, Andalucián summer sky, fringed with the wild bamboo fronds.

The perspective of the height of the structure is completely lost in the vegetation.

  2. I love light houses and this one looks amazing. We are actually looking at property in your area. You never know, we may meet up one day. Love your blog.

      • My hubby is British and his parents retired to the Costa Blanca a few years ago. So we are thinking of moving to Spain as well. I’ll let you know how it goes. I really appreciated your list of the cost of things.

  3. A beautiful shot, Marianne. That lighthouse must be something to see from all angles, whether cast against the blue sky or the Mediterranean. I bet it gets photographed countless times on sunny days.

    • Yes, I guess it must do, John. Most subjects look much more attractive in the sunshine with blue skies though, don’t they? 🙂

      Thanks for your comment – always appreciated.

  4. Lovely picture! The sky seems to really glow. I would like to see the transparent flooring you mention – is it like a grill or have they put in glass? I always feel quite strange when i walk over things like that 🙂

I´d love to hear from you, and much appreciate your comments. Thank you.
