The town of Tolox, with between 1000 - 2000 inhabitants, is situated within the Natural Park Sierra de las Nieves and is a must visit location for lovers of hiking, potholing, climbing, cycling and other nature based activities. It is a small town in which the flowers, white houses and long streets come together to create a picturesque urban ensemble. The town offers various options allowing you enjoy a mix of activities, for those nature lovers, pretty nature trails on the outskirts of the town, and a spa for those in search of relaxation and wellness.
Tolox is home to the Fuente Amargosa Thermal Spa which is the only medicinal thermal spa in all of Spain. This spa mainly treats inflammatory skin conditions, allergic reactions, chronic coronary artery rheumatisms and chronic inflammatory respiratory problems. These waters, unlike other natural springs, are not suitable for drinking, but it's the gases that come from the springs that the spa uses. The thermal spa was opened in 1869 and rebuilt after a flood at the start of the 20th century.
As you make your way through Tolox there is the San Miguel Arcángel church. Built in the 16th century, it was burnt down in 1568 during the Moorish uprising and was rebuilt 9 years later. During these events, the area´s Christians took refuge in the church. Inside you will find canvases from the 18th century that have been attributed to Diego de la Cerda.
The chapel of San Roque, Patron Saint of the town, is 3 kilometres from the city centre and is surrounded by unbeatable views. The Virgen de las Nieves chapel is situated in a building right in the heart of Natural Park Sierra de las Nieves, surrounded by dense pinewood.
Tolox celebrates a variety of local festivals. Amongst the more unique of its festivals, the Día de los Polvos (Powder Day) stands out. It takes place the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday and involves all the townspeople throwing flour over each other. In honour of the Patron Saint, San Roque, the noisiest and most popular festival of Tolox takes place, known as "Cohetá", it is celebrated the 16th August. There is also a festival in memory of Tolox´s Arabic past; this is the Día de las Mozas o "Día de la Cencerrá".
