Nice to look at, not much to see though. There is a cafe outside were you can rest and while away a few minutes.

ok if you happen to walk by as it is not worth a detour or a special trip. It is just a building/visitor centre/exhibition venue (not a castle as such) which seems to be closed most of the time. Check hours in advance and dont rely on the web site. The view however of the sea is breathtaking and worth... More

This little red building is a well known landmark on the prom of benalmadina and is very picturesque and a perfect photo opportunity sitting on its paved tree lined piazza. It's real gem though is once the doors are opened.the inner hall is tiled and mosque like and the light entering through the beautiful windows is so serene. There are... More

Went her one day while walking with friends .the architecture inside is beautiful. Apparently the complex carvings have a deliberate mistake in them,. As it was believed that only God creates perfection, it was however impossible to find. It is situated along the front line ;(beachside) going towards fuengirola .it's worth a visit when waking past.

Beautiful when its lit up at night, and we were actually lucky enough to have a look inside this time as it is usually closed. There was a small art exhibition on, the interior was nice- and COOL most importantly :) beautiful view over the beach and sea, and FREE!
