Information

The viewing platform El Balcón del Mediterráneo, situated at the eastern end of the Playa de las Lindes in Torrox Costa, is cantilevered over a Roman archaeological site. The foundations are visible of a salting factory and necropolis. This was the location of a Roman plant for the production of salted fish and garum, a sauce made from fish guts. The factory was abandoned in the 4th or 5th century was then used as a family mausoleum. There are also further Roman remains next to the lighthouse El Faro de Torrox.
