Benalmadena - Benalmadena Pueblo

Benalmádena Pueblo

Benalmádena Pueblo is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Malaga. The town, which has retained the ambience of a sleepy white Andalusian village, is 280 meters above sea level. The old town is a maze of narrow, whitewashed cobble streets adorned with displays of coloured geraniums spilling out of wall-mounted plant pots. Traditional cuisine, local crafts and the remnants of several cultures, not to mention the stunning views and mysterious architecture, are just some of the attractions this small mountainside town offers.
