Hostal La Torre

Hostal La Torre is located in Velilla-Taramay, a coastal town in the province of Granada that stands out because of its beaches and its warm climate. In addition to the multiple attractions of Velilla and Almuñécar, just three kilometres away, we also encourage you to know other close areas if you want to make the most of your stay.
Velilla-Taramay
Located on the heart of the Costa Tropical of Granada, Velilla-Taramay is a haven of tranquillity where you can enjoy the sunshine and the very longseafront promenade. This area has a lively atmosphere and a lot of shops, bars and restaurants. You can easily get to the centre of Almuñécar on foot, while enjoying this promenade.
Undoubtedly, the main attraction of Velilla is its beach, with 1.500 metres long and 50 meters width. This sandy area has several services and is adapted for people with reduced mobility.
Bathed by the temperate waters of the Alborán Sea, Velilla beach is crowned by the Tesorillo Tower, a defensive structure with Arab origins.
On the opposite side of the beach, raises the Velilla watchtower, a fort used to control the access to the region by sea.
Water park Aqua Tropic
In Velilla-Taramay you can visit the water park Aqua Tropic. This complex has several pools, sledges and attractions to have a fun day with the family or a group of friends.
Aqua Tropic has also the unique characteristic of using salted water in all the facilities.
The park is open during the summer season from 11 am to 7 pm.
Almuñécar
Almuñécar is a city full of history where numerous people throughout history have settle down. Its privileged location, surrounded by Mediterranean Sea and a fertile valley protected by the mountains, made the city one of the most important ports of the peninsula.
Almuñécar was set up by Phoenicians traders and nowadays this influence is preserved on the necropolis of Laurita and Puente de Noy, dated from VIII BC century. The centre of the town is filled with roman monuments, such as the salted fish manufactures, the columbariums, the aqueduct or the Cueva de los Siete Palacios, which hosts the archaeological museum.
The eight centuries of Muslim presence in the region are also noticeable on the watch towers all over the seafront and the fortifications and underground cisterns of San Miguel Castle.
Granada
The city of Granada surprise visitors with its many monuments and its deep folklore. Start your visit following the interweaving of inner streets and big avenues of the historic centre. There you can visit the Cathedral, the Royal Chapel and other religious monuments that embellish a city that was once the favourite place of the Catholic Monarchs.
Be sure to visit the Alhambra and the Generalife, the most emblematic place of Granada and the sign of the Arab peak in the city. Considered to be the zenith of the Nasrid art, the palaces and gardens of the Alhambra form a unique monument that will transport you to Al-Ándalus.
Complete your visit traversing the streets with white houses of Albaicín quartier or enjoy a flamenco show on the Sacromonte.
Sierra Nevada National Park
One of the most important national parks in Spain is located very close to Hostal La Torre. Sierra Nevada is a big mountain range with the highest peak in the Iberian Peninsula: Mulhacén, with almost 3.500 metres above sea level.
Sierra Nevada is also a Biosphere Reserve, designated by Unesco on 1999, and you can practise there several activities such as ski, trekking, fishing or biking.
