A very pretty place nestled in the hills leading upto Benalmadena pueblo and very cheap to visit ! It was worth paying a few euros to go in and have a look around but not a attraction that takes hours to look around .

The Castillo is about a ten minute walk from the Pueblo. It's €2.00 each for admission. It's a quirky place dedicated to Christopher Colombus. Good views and a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.

Very nice castle/monument. A special combination of building styles. You get a little leaflet when you get in, so you know what you're looking at. This is helpful.

A man's tribute to Christopher Columbus... Wildly random, but a must see. Read the explanation and climb willy-nilly over the little chunks of history.

Stunning views from the hill. Nice place to spend 1-1,5 hours (if you are with kids, even more because they like to walk aroung, run, climb and have a fun there). There is a little turtle living at one one of the fountain, at outside...More
