Narrow cobbled streets, traditional whitewashed facades and overflowing colourful terracotta flowerpots apply equally to the inland and Costa del Sol villages like Benalmadena Pueblo. Andalusian charm on full display with views directly across the Mediterranean.
Strong Andalusian culture and customs endure despite the influx of tourism and ex-pat communities. If it tradition you crave there is no need to buy into the mountains or countryside to experience the real taste of Spanish lifestyle. These quaint villages retain an incredible amount of history and heritage. They are evident on every welcoming Plaza and café bar where the daily siesta is the highlight for many locals.
Benalmadena Pueblo is a small traditional village branching off the principal municipality of Benalmadena. Not to be confused with Benalmádena Costa and its busy marina and beaches, Benalmadena Pueblo is far more understated an affair. Sleepy village life and lingering tranquillity, especially deep in the centre, away from the one busy road that takes the traffic from the coast towards the west.
Gaze your eyes on the historic remains of the walls of the great fortress that once surrounded the village. Soak up the historical ambience that oozes from the adjoining Santo Domingo De Guzman church, the oldest church in the area and an ideal location for the perfect Mediterranean wedding.
Sculptures and monumental landmarks appear all around the pueblo including the emblem and mascot of the village, La Nina de Benalmádena, created by well-known Malagueño artist Jaime Pimentel. Wind your way down to the spectacular Castillo de Colomares, a modern edifice constructed in 1994 to commemorate Christopher Columbus and his discovery of the new world.
Whether you are a resident or visitor to the village, you will not want to miss out on a trip to the Butterfly Park. The Thai themed temple Mariposario de Benalmadena is the largest butterfly park in Europe and offers an enjoyable family day out for children and adults alike. The temple is home to more than 1,500 exotic butterflies that fly free to enjoy their natural surroundings of waterfalls, flowers and tropical plants.
