Well worth a journey up. You can get a few buses up there from the coast. Typical traditional white walled houses, with lots of plants and flowers. A few places to eat and drink, with amazing views down to the coast of Benalmadena.

Found this little gem on my first trip to Benalmadena and loved it so much that I booked to stay in a boutique hotel on one of the squares for my next visit. Don't bother with taxis - the buses are much cheaper and run regularly. The views are stunning. For a similar experience go to Mijas - higher up... More

Excellent for a late morning stroll and a liesurely lunch. Brilliant views from the Church .. so take a camera. Take a Taxi there .. but only about an hour walk downhill to the coast .. if not too hot!

This is a cute little village with a lovely view of the sea. There are a few sights to see, but it won't take more than 2 hours to see it all. There are some nice restaurants. The church is quite beautiful. It is an easy busride from Arroyo or the coast, and it is very close to the Buddhist... More

i was taken to the Pueblo for lunch,so many people going to Benalmadena wouldn't even know it was there and that would be a shame. The Pueblo is such a lovely,relaxed place to spend a few hours.all the restaurants are quality,choose any one of them. I'm glad i went there and i will go back every time i visit Benalmadena.

Not quite as traditionally old Spanish as some would like to believe, but it's a world away from the commercialism that is Benalmadena Marina. There are many restaurants and bars you would be wise to do a bit of research first, but the whole place has an amazing feel to it especially the Plaza d'Espagne which is a must visit... More

Although becoming more of a tourist attraction it still has the look of a traditional spanish village and worth a hour wandering around to see the squares and church, also good view acoss the bat. Easy to catch the bus there. We took the 103 but there are others you can catch from the train station. Note It would be... More

The bus stops outside the hotel with a flat fare of1.55 euros per journey. The old part has some good shops, quaint squares, excellent coffee shops and then a leisurely stroll back down to Benalmadena, via the park.

this is a lovely whitewashed and flowerfilled pueblo where you will see the local Spanish living and working happily side by side with many expat nationalities giving you many varied places to eat and sample local and international food. Visit the lovely Church up near the Plaza Espana and enjoy the spectacular views from this vantage point. You will not... More
