Benalmádena The Essential
There are two Benalmádenas: Benalmádena Costa, one of the main resorts on the Costa del Sol, and the inland village of old Benalmádena. The latter, with its whitewashed houses resplendent with flowers, has retained its typical Andalucian charm. Sights worth visiting include the archaeological museum, with its interesting collection of pre-Columbian exhibits, the modern Castillo de Bil-Bil with its cultural centre, and the 16C Torremuelle, Torrequebrada and Torrebermeja watchtowers.
