The Virgin's Spot

Rincon de la Victoria lies on the coast 10 kilometres to the east of Malaga, in the southwest of Axarquia. It has a population of 18,000 increasing to 40,000 in the summer. Originally a fishing village, the increase in size is due to it's proximity to Malaga and the airport and to tourism. Its beaches stretch for 9 kilometres.

Rincon de la Victoria comprises four urban nuclei: Rincon, La Cala del Moral, Torre de Benagalbon on the coast and Benagalbon inland, which lies on two scenic routes the Route of the Raisin and the Route of Sun and Avocado.

Settlement of the area dates from prehistoric times. Late Palaeolithic (35,000-10,000 BC) sites have been discovered from which a collection of tools and Stone-Age art have been extracted. The remains of Roman settlement and a 3rd century Roman fortress are also located in the area. The Roman writer, Plinio, refers to a temple built here that was dedicated to the moon. During the 12th century, under Arab occupation, the town was known as Bezmiliana. The stronghold of the Castle of Bezmiliana, of great strategic importance, was built at this time and its remains can be seen at Castellón.

Rincon town centre

There are interesting caves at Las Cuevas del Tesoro (Treasure Caves) where gold was reputedly hidden by Arabs. A series of underground caverns has stalagmites, stalagtites, underground pools and Palaeolithic wall paintings. These are the only visible marine caves in Europe and are believed to be the prehistoric sanctuary of the goddess Noctiluca.
