45 minutes from Manilva we find the Fuengirola Zoo.
In December 1998, Rain Forest won the concession of the old park, performing a radical transformation and creating the first zoo fully designed under the pioneering concept of "zoo-immersion.
Taking advantage of the enviable climate of the Costa del Sol and taking into account the small size of available land, we chose a unique ecosystem: tropical forests. Subtropical vegetation growing in the Malaga coast served to recreate the tropical rain forests of Madagascar, Equatorial Africa and Southeast Asia. A team of architects, builders, sculptors, painters and gardeners were put to work to bring to reality the visionary designs.
It took two years to transform completely the face of the zoo. Billboards and buildings are gone, now there are rivers and waterfalls, caves, valleys and rocks. The small size of the field was a challenge. Stables were built underground, deep canyons and sky gardens in order to avoid the view of adjacent buildings. So the zoo grew vertically and managed to create the impression of being in a larger environment.
Subject areas: Tropical forests, equatorial Africa and Southeast Asia.

Visitors to our town and its surroundings can benefit from multiple opportunities for cultural enrichment and entertainment. Not surprisingly, over the centuries and with the movement of people, a culturally rich heritage has been brought to the area, including the cultural heritage of Manilva where two archeological sites stand both declared as a site of cultural interest: The Castles of Alcorrín and the vicinity of La Duquesa Castle. The Castles of Alcorrín are a walled fortress from the ninth century BC, in which elements of the modern day world coincide with a clear similarity to Phoenician style building techniques. The Roman site of La Duquesa Castle has a chronology that dates from the first century A.D. until the fifth century A.D. The historical monument consists of Necropolis, Villa, Spa and a fish salting factory. This enclave emerged as a result of the food preservation industry that revolved around fishing for tuna in traps.
CHURCH SANTA ANA
Located in the so-called Church Square, the current building of the parish church of Santa Ana, was built on a smaller one at the end of the sixteenth century. For the construction of the new church contributed the bishop, the villagers and the Duke of Arcos, lord of the town. Master Felipe Pérez 1776 started the work, that would last until 1783, the year they came to an end.
Castillo de la Duquesa
It occupies the site where once there was a Roman villa, part of which was recycled material for construction, emerging in its shadow the neighbourhood of that name. In 1767 Don Francisco Paulino,inhabitant of Seville, built it at his expense, so the king granted putting him in charge of a cavalry company. The buildong design and construction management was entrusted to engineer Don Miguel del Castillo.

Torre de la Sal
Located on a promontory on the coast between the Rio Manilva Casares and Camarate Arroyo, is the Torre de la Sal or Torre del Salto de la Mora, as it is known.

El Ingenio Chico
Ingenio Chico is one of the two sugar mills built by the Duke of Arcos on these lands. The aqueduct preserved the union with the rest of the building in mud, reminding us of the medieval buildings and making us think of the workforce of Moorish tradition.
