From town to town. Benalmadena

Surface Area: 26.6 square kilometres
Population: 56 000

Benalmadena consists of three centres of poulation, which are now joined together, even though they are differentiated. They are Benalmadena Pueblo, Benalmadena Costa and Arroyo de la Miel.

The first of these is the oldest and is a typical whitewashed Andalusian village -whitewashed with exceptional care, in fact-with narrow streets and relaxing squares. Due to the elevation (almost 300 metres) of the village centre, it has a number of exceptional vantage points for viewing the Costa del Sol.

A large part of the population and municipal services are concentrated in Arroyo de la Miel, a subsidiary administrative district that owes its growth to the commuter railway station, and is the economic centre of the municipality.

Benalmádena Costa is the most cosmopolitan section, the center of the tourism in the city. You can find large hotels, a casino, a marina and businesses of all kinds.

In Benalmádena Pueblo you can find the Santo Domingo church, whose construction dates from the seventeenth century. There is a magnificent viewing point next to the church, and in these same surroundings, the architect César Manrique designed the Jardines del Muro (El Muro gardens), which command a very wide view with the sea as a backdrop.

The Museo Arqueológico (Archaeological Museum, Avenida Juan Peralta, 43; Telephone: 952 448 593) houses the best collection of pre-Columbian art in all of Europe, as well as Neolithic and Roman relics. The building’s marble floors are from an eighteenth century ship that sank off the coast, as is a sixteenth century Diana Cazadora (Diana the Huntress) that is shown in one of the galleries.

Next to the beach stands the Castillo de Bil-Bil (Bil-Bil Castle), an Arabic-style structure that is a glowing red on the outside and decorated with glazed tile and bas-reliefs in the exquisite Nazarite tradition. Fountains, a heritage from the Muslim culture, flank the castle, and its exterior commands magnificent views of the Benalmádena beaches.

How to Get There

The locality is perfectly linked to the Costa del Sol by the Mediterráneo Expressway (AP-7; N-340), but you can take the train also from Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Málaga.
