La Mula: Hello all the readers of Digamextra !, My name is Silvia, yesterday my husband and I have gone to “tapear” to LA MULA, a rural bar that is on the road that goes up to Torrox Pueblo, passing the LIDL supermarket.
We were amazed by the cleanliness, and the excellent frying of fish and seafood, but the best came at the end, when we had to pay. Very good quality and price! It is ideal to spend a nice and rich moment in middle of the field. Silvia, El Morche

Wild boar keeps local police and hunters occupied for two hours in town-centre chase: The animals are a common sight around the Torrox river but they rarely enter populated areas. Local police, hunters and other officers spent almost two hours on Wednesday morning trying to capture a young wild boar in Torrox town centre. The animal, which according to sources was around three years old, was first spotted by residents in the El Pontil and La Cebadilla areas of the old town. Once caught, it was released in an area of countryside outside the town centre. According to sources, wild boar are a common sight around the Torrox river but they rarely enter populated areas.
