Torremolinos will soon have yet another reason to attract visitors and investors

05 02 18

Situated west of Malaga, Torremolinos is where some of the first resorts of the Costa del Sol were developed.  Since the 1950s, this once relatively poor fishing village has made the stunning transformation into one of the most popular destinations in Europe and the world. The best part about Torremolinos is that time has not stood still. Growth and development have continued over the years and soon the locals will have a new and impressive shopping mall.

The Intu Shopping Centre has managed to drum up quite a bit of excitement and it will prove to be a valuable addition. The plans were finalised in November 2017, meaning that yet another milestone has been reached in its development. As part of their preliminary survey work, British shopping centre developer representatives visited Costa del Sol, ensuring that only the very best work is done and all the plans are drafted with utmost accuracy.

This impressive centre is to be built north of the Palacio de Congresos and the area will be fenced off weeks prior to the beginning of construction. It will be the largest commercial and leisure centre in Andalucia and visitors will be able to browse around plenty of shops and take their pick from several restaurants. This shopping centre will also be home to its very own dry ski slope!

Apart from the benefits for visitors, it’s also important to note that this shopping centre will also help create 4,000 jobs in this area with an annual income of approximately €3 million, meaning that the mall will have something to offer tourists as well as local residents. For those who are considering moving to the Costa del Sol, Torremolinos just got bumped up the list in terms of job opportunities and entertainment. Whether you are interested in joining the workforce or simply looking for the kind of fun and convenience a nearby mall has to offer, it’s certainly worthwhile asking your local Costa del Sol real estate agent to search for your dream home in this area.


Remember, that apart from this shopping centre, there are also plenty of other wonderful attractions in Torremolinos. The beaches are spectacular and they make every day feel like a vacation! If you fancy a stroll in the gardens, make your way to the Jardin Botanico Molino de Inca. These botanical gardens are immaculate and it’s worth taking the time to really enjoy each lush display rather than just passing through. You will also want to take a walk down Calle San Miguel where you will find a number of shops, restaurants, and cafes. The atmosphere here is amazing and you can’t help but feel filled with energy when you stroll, shop, or dine in this area! If you enjoy architecture, you should visit the Casa de los Navajas at least once. This and other local attractions are perfect for those who would like to get to know the area, the people, and the culture before settling down and purchasing a property here.
