Tolox lies between the rio de los Caballos and the rio de los Horcajos at the end of a side road hanging like a loose thread from the C-344 Málaga-Ronda highway. When they reach the village the two rivers call a truce and combine to form the rio Riachuelo.
The hills here are steep and show no mercy to the unfit in the flame-grilled Andalucían summer, but that should not deter the visitor. The heat determines the pace, and the pace in the white villages of Andalucía should always be slow.
Tolox has a long history. In the tenth century it formed part of the independent Moorish kingdom of Soleimán, son of the rebellious Omar den Hafsun. Soleimán was far too friendly and tolerant towards the Christians for other harder-line Moors' liking, and in 921 Abderrahman III overthrew him and absorbed his domain.
