Lovely church, fantastic views.

Lovely church that is built on a large rock overlooking the coast and some of the village. You get a 360' view of the area if you walk around the church, well worth doing.

A look at a traditional Spanish village, white-washed houses, narrow streets, cafes and small shops. The views from the Church were spectacular.

Scenery beautiful. Great restraunts but don't go there until late evening. It was so humid so save a visit for late evening

We have just spent two weeks in a villa at Benalmadena Pueblo and had a great time. There are some teriffic bars and restraunts offering good quality food at reasonable prices. There are lots of traditional Spanish streets to explore leading to cafe filled squares. We were fortunate to be around when a Moroccan street market was in town...some amazing... More

The bus ride to the pueblo is very scenic, the village is beautiful with quaint, quiet streets to explore, a good selection of places to eat. Also within easy walking distance to The Buddha and The Butterfly Park. Definitely worth a visit.

Traditional Spanish village with outstanding views. Many Spanish owned restaurants and bars to choose from. The town enjoys many of the traditional festivals so if planned carefully this is a place you can really feel close to real Spanish culture. Not many tourists, large British and European ex-pat community. Only a few miles from the coast and the traditional brits... More

A beautiful little pueblo with lots of little narrow streets where you can hide from the sun for an hour or two. Very like Mijas but much less commercialised. Stop and partake in an ice cold beer or cafe con leche and a tapas or two or three or ten in one of the shaded cafe bars. Lose yourself and... More

Easy to reach by car. Parking mainly off the streets. Not quite intuitive as to where everything is. Bring Google maps. But worth a visit. Stroll around, colorful, completely pedestrian access only, little squares and eateries. No high brow shopping, simply quaint.
