St Michael's Chapel

San Miguel is the patron saint of Torremolinos, something that dates back to before the construction of the hermitage in the early 18th century. The present church and chapel of San Miguel was built in 1896 over the hermitage on the edge of the cliff of El Bajondillo. In this area we would once have found several mills, all protected by the Torre de Pimentel, a symbol of Torremolinos.
