Such a change from the coast

Lovely place to wander around. Park next to the church and take the glass lift up to the centre. A number of reasonable places for a snack and a drink.

Such a charming village with little cobbled side streets and lookslike time has stood still. Beautiful white washed buildings and of course the village church of Santo Domingo, which sits on the edge of hill giving splendid views. Just outside the village their is a splendid buddist temple which was built 2003. Lots of history in and around Benalmadena Pueblo.... More

So close to the busy beach area, yet so different. Here the houses are all old and white, the streets narrow and connected with the many stairs. Very genuine and pretty!

Having visited several Spanish "old quarter" districts, I admit to being disappointed here. Interesting sites are scattered, the main road into town runs right through the middle of the place, and it just plain lacks sparkle. Nice views from the old church yard, a bizarre little concrete mini-castle, a fine but marginally significant museum. That's it.

Really enjoyed our stay in the Pueblo. Did not manage to go into the Church, as it looked as if it was closed on the day we walked up to it. We were staying in the village from the 30th Dec 2015 until the 8th Jan 2016. We had a great New Years Eve in the Bull Bar, and also... More

A lovely Spanish village to wander about and admire the typical white colored houses, many of which have pretty pots and plants outside, even in winter time. A nice town square, castle and church can also be visited. There are plenty of places to get a reasonable priced drink or meal. We walked after our meal in the evening and... More

The Pueblo is a lovely village, very popular with locals and tourists of all nations. There are good restaurants here with a variety of Spanish cuisine as well as other nationalities. The village also contains a variety of hotels and bars. At various points north of the village one can access the Rutas (local mountain trails) up into the hills.... More

What a delightful find. After an hour long uphill walk (or bus ride) from the town, you are rewarded by great views. High in the hills, Benalmadena Pueblo is really charming and oh, so pretty. I hope it stays as it is. It was the original village of the local Spanish - here long before the town or beach resort... More
