Would recommend a visit at this place for anyone who's around Benálmadena! I honestly did not know what to except from this, we thought it looked interesting and the entry was dead cheap (only €2). The architecture is really strange but interesting, but what I...More

Don't expect to be visiting a castle. This is a monument to Christopher Columbus. Finished in the mid 80s yes the mid 80s. A €2 entry fee is worth the money just for the views as well as the gardens that flourish with different coloured...More

Castillo de Colomares was built by Dr Martin and two assistants in homage to Christopher Columbus and it is still owned by his family. What a quirky and amazing place with a lovely garden, view of the coast and a seating area with cold drinks...More

Worth seeing castle dedicated to Columbus. U need to get off at Benalmadena Pueblo and then go down the hill. Not very popular in guidebooks but I recommend it. U can spend there between 0,5 to 1hour;)

What a great place to visit. It only costs 2€ to get in, and you'll get a tourguide written your own language, so you'll get most of the sights. We build and unique statues with different meanings. Even the kids enjoyed, cause they can run...More

I would say buy water or drinks before going up there. It's a little bit away from stores. It's about a 15 minute taxi ride. It shouldn't be more than 15 euros to get up there. There are buses everywhere for less than 2... More
