Artola Beach, Marbella, Málaga
Playa Artola is the beach situated to the west of Cabopino Marina. This is on a promenant part of the coast called Punta Ladrones. One assumes ladrones (robbers) prefered to come ashore on promentaries rather than inlets. A very early partly restored square plan watch tower bears testiment to this and is also called Torre Ladrones watch tower. For those interested in the watchtowers that form a chain along this this coast, the square based ones are the oldest and of Moorish origin, the round bsed ones were constructed in the nineteenth century.
