INFO

Rincon de la Victoria

Rincon de la Victoria is a municipality in the western corner of the Comarca de la Axarquia, in a preferred location on the Costa del Sol. The progressive tourism in recent years and the possession of historical treasures mean the turn to an important tourist destination and an excellent place to live and vacation. This municipality has 27.51 km² and consists of four residential areas. Cala del Moral; Rincon de la Victoria, Torre de Benagalbon and Benagalbon. The limits are: Moclinejo and Macharaviaya in the north, Totalan in the northwest, Malaga in the west and Velez-Malaga in the east. Rincon has very good motorway links with the main cities in Andalusia and is about 15 minutes from Malaga airport. The economy of the municipality depends on tourism, although one should not forget about fishing and agriculture. Visitors will find a modern city in Rincon de la Victoria, where a mixture of tradition and modern development can be found.Welcome to Rincon de la Victoria, Puerta de la Axarquia, the gateway to Axarquia history Rincon has been in very distant times inhabited. According to the data, there was a settlement here fifty thousand years ago. Around 550 BC you could find the Punic-Phoenician culture in the hill of Benagalbon. Later, during the Roman period, watchtowers and a fortified city, the name of which was Bezmiliana, were built. The Arabs inhabited the city and gave it the rank of medina. The name Rincon de la Victoria dates from 1950. It has a connection with the Order de los Minimos in the convent of the Victoria of Malaga. This year the capital of the municipality changed from Benagalbon to Rincon de la Victoria. Monuments To get to know Rincon de la Victoria better, you must first visit the Fuerte de Benizmiliana house. It is one of the best buildings in the military architecture of the 18th century. Carlos III decided to build it. It served as protection because this area was full of English and Dutch pirates. Nowadays the house has been renovated and is used for exhibitions. The halls are world famous because very well known artists exhibit their works here. In Oficina Comarcal de Turismo you can get information about the opening times of the exhibitions. An essential visit is the hiking trail to the old watchtowers. The Torres Almenaras has been recently renovated and is located in Cantal and Torre de Benagalbon. You will also have a good time at the towers in Funez and Albendas. Rincon de la Victoria also has the famous "Cueva del Tesoro" or Higueron, where you can see the city's paleolithic history, tools and paintings. The "Cueva del Tesoro" is a cave by the sea with several rooms, shaped by the water. The Sala de los Lagos and the Virgin of Marco Craso form a stage on which legends about the grotto are told. One of them gives the name "Cueva del Tesoro". It is said that 5 Moorish kings hid their treasures here when they fled the Christian reconquest. Only 5 coins and a lamp have been found from the treasure. All come from the Nazari period. In Benagalbon we can discover the way of life of our newest ancestors in the Museo de Arte Popular, where tools, farming equipment, etc. are exhibited. In Benagalbon, which lies between Moclinejo and Rincon, a small folklore museum was established.

watchtowers

The origin of the watchtowers dates from the "andalusi" period under the government of Yusuf I (XIVth century), which was a major sponsor of the coastal fortifications. The first written notes about the watchtowers date back to 1492, the year in which Juan Alonso Serrano wrote to the Catholic kings and requested the reconstruction of the watchtowers. Later in the XVIII. Century, they were rebuilt and operated as a military defense system headed by Capitan General in Granada. The function of these watchtowers was to keep a constant watch on the sea and to warn the fortresses of pirate robberies, by means of smoke signals during the day and by campfires at night. If the distance allowed, the alarm was secretly sent to surprise the enemy during landing. The watchtower El Camtal stands on a steep coast, about 30m above sea level and has a conical trunk shape with a maximum diameter of 7.15m and a minimum of 6.25m and its height is 10.65m. The watchtower of Torre de Benagalbon stands on a hill and also has a conical trunk shape with a diameter of 7m below and 6m above and a height of 10.50m. Functionally, these buildings have 2 characteristics, one of them is the terrace floor and the other is the inner chamber, with a spiral staircase inside the tower.

It is the main holiday of Rincon de la Victoria that always coincides with the Festival del Virgen del Carmen. As with the other three, the traditional is mixed with the most modern in terms of culture, leisure and gastronomy.

The event is a commitment to the craft beer sector, which contributes to a kind of booming gastronomic tourism.
