Torremolinos town hall and the newly formed Asociación Pasaje Begoña has applied for the Pasaje Begoña, (now called Pasaje Gil Vicente), to become recognised by the Law of Historical and Democratic Memory of Andalucía. During the 1960s and '70s, the passage was the hub of the nightlife scene and home to the first gay bar in the town.

The town hall, which will first seek to change the name back to the original, wants to encourage shops and bars to return to the area. It also intends to install the town's first 'Pink Market', a project the council claim has already attracted the interest of several investors who want to promote the image of this “historic landmark”.
