Benalmadena Pueblo Spain
Benalmadena is both a seafaring and mountain village. Although this may seem a paradox, it is a great balcony over the Mediterranean. Its situation, eminently coastal, has favoured the presence of man since time immemorial, as can be seen by the different archaeological findings of the Zorrera, Botijos and Toro caves.
Iberian, Phoenician and Roman remains show the passing of different cultures through the village's history, but it was in the Moorish period when it acquired more importance, mainly due to the rich mines (Benalmadena in Arab means "sons of the mines"). After the reconquest, the village was destroyed and was repopulated by Christians from the Guadalquivir valley. From then the area was integrated into the defensive system of the coast and was fortified with the watchtowers of Torre Muelle, Torre Quebrada and Torre Bermeja.

Benalmadena is a unique village, with three urban centres (the village, Arroyo de la Miel and Benalmadena-Costa) that contain, between them, all the features of the most traditional Andalusian villages and the cosmopolitanism of a touristic area. The landscaping of the village was one of the most spectacular of the Mediterranean due to its beauty and good taste.
