Benalmadena Pueblo

The name ´Benalmadena´originates from when the arabs founded the town in the eighth century - when translated it means ´Children of The Mines´. This was because ochre and iron ore were once mined locally.

Today, the area is a beautiful, tranquil, whitewashed village, with flowers that overspill from every balcony. Plaza Espana is the centre point of the village, where you will find the statue´La Nina´ who has become the symbol of Benalmadena. There are some lovely restaurants in this area, with orange trees lining the streets.

There are several points of interest, including the church of Santo Domingo, which affords stunning views of the whole coastline; and the famous Colomares Castle. Outside the village, you can find places of interest such as the Benalmadena Stupa - or Buddhist Temple, which was inaugurated in 2003, and is the largest of it´s kind in western Europe. The views of the coast from here are truly spectacular! The Mariposario (Butterfly Park) is also worth visiting, as it´s the largest butterfly park in Europe, containing nearly 1600 types of butterflies from all over the world.

El Higuerón

If you have driven on the main A7 motorway past Benalmadena, you can´t help but notice the large ´El Higueron´restaurant above the motorway- which we recommend for it´s special atmosphere and food! And of course, a second to none view of the coast. The area itself is one of great natural beauty, as you can really appreciate fantastic views of the mountains, and coastline.

The most popular residential area is the ´Reserva Del Higuerón´ which is made up of top quality Apartments , Semi-Detached Homes, and Townhouses. It has been meticulously planned out, and has a fantastic range of amenities, including a very popular Spa & Fitness Centre.

Apart from this relatively new development, you will also find clusters of other developments nearby, that include larger, bespoke villas.
