This is the platform which had been built to protect an archeological site in the town of Torrox. Located along the coast at the end of Avenida El Faro, this platform is made of steel and glass. It was constructed to facilitate the visitors to look at the remains of an early roman settlement believed to be built during the 3rd century AD called Caviclum. It had baths, fish and meat drying areas, as well as ceramic ovens.The fooring of the platform is made of metal frames that hold thick glasses. One can see the remains below, descriptions of which are written on a floor board in different languages for tourist information. Once on the platform, one can make good snapshots of the Lighthouse, the Mediterranean Sea, the site of neighboring towns as well as the Torrox Costa Promenade and the ships that sail from Malaga to different European destinations.
