As is true for most towns, cities, and pueblos across Andalusia, Estepona is also home to Moorish monuments, the most important of which is the Torre del Reloj.

This clock tower is the only surviving part of the former Los Remedios church, originally built in 1473 and destroyed by the 1755 earthquake.

A neo-classic dome was added to the clock tower in the 18th century and now looks over the Plaza del Reloj, which is one of those idyllic little places you stumble upon on a leisurely evening walk.

This is where many festive events are celebrated, including New Year’s Eve, when everyone gathers here to eat 12 grapes at each stroke of midnight.
