Rincón de la Victoria
Rincón de la Victoria
The municipality of Rincón de la Victoria is 27.51 km2 and is situated in a privileged location: adjacent to the city of Malaga, while at the same time being the gateway to the region of La Axarquia. The location lets you enjoy a subtropical climate where traditional upland crops (vines, olive trees, almond trees) are giving way to other markedly tropical crops (avocados, mangoes, etc..) Due to a mild winter climate where the temperature rarely drops below 10 degrees, Rincon can offer sunshine almost every day of the year.
Rincon de la Victoria is very well connected to the rest of the Andalusian capitals, as passing through the municipality is the Autovia Mediterraneo (A7-E15). This road provides direct access to Malaga International Airport in 15 minutes and the centre of the city of Malaga is omly12 kilometres away and can be accessed by the various exits from the A7 or the Ma-24 (old N-340). The magnificent location and the friendly nature of its people make it one of the fastest growing towns of Andalucía. The demographics of Rincon consist of 4 distinct population centers: La Cala del Moral, Rincón de la Victoria, Torre Benagalbón and Benagalbón, the first three being along the coastal strip and the last to the interior.
The 9km of quiet beaches offer tourists all means necessary to enjoy their vacation, since in recent years, these beaches all have the Blue Flag awarded by the European Union.
