Dear Collector,  

As many of you know, the next International Meeting for Ancient Iron Collectors will be held in Torre del Mar, only 30 km from Málaga ( Costa del Sol), Spain. The event will be situated in the Old Sugar Factory, where at this moment my collection is located.

I would like to show you my town and surroundings. In this way, those of you that have never heard about Torre del Mar will have the chance to see the charms and maybe take the option to come for your next hollidays.

Torre del Mar is a small town located in the east side of Costa del Sol. Our tourism is mainly families that come during the high season. During winter time, we are visited by retired persons from the north of Europe; they come looking for sun and warm temperatures. That is the reason we have the slogan “TORRE DEL MAR ALL YEAR ROUND”.

Many of the restaurants on the sea side are open all year long. Of course, there are other amenities, like sailing or playing golf.   Our town is part of an area call Axarquía, named by the Arabs that were here for eight centuries. Thanks to the climate we have, in this part of Andalucía we grow Muscat grape, Olive tree, Avocado, Mango, Papaya and many other subtropical fruits.  

There are so many wonderful places to visit, but don’t miss to visit Nerja, Frigiliana, Torrox, Algarrobo, Competa, Comares and the spectacular city of Málaga. If you have more time to enjoy our culture don ́t forget Sevilla (2 hours by car);  Cordoba 1h30, Granada 1h, Ronda 2h and Gibraltar 2h. Torre del Mar is the ideal place for vacations.
