History & Culture in Benalmadena

By | 7 December, 2019 | 0 comments

Although the Costa del Sol is known for good weather throughout the year, the usual summer activities of beach days and sunbathing probably are out of the picture meaning you can enjoy a different experience during your holiday to Benalmadena with MAC Hotels. Why not make it your mission to discover the very best cultural experiences in Benalmadena and appreciate another side to this breathtaking holiday destination.

When staying at the Hotel Mac Puerto Marina you will find yourself surrounded by the best bars, restaurants and boutique stores in the area. However from here you can also easily explore the historic landmarks of the town, with medieval watchtowers, Torre Muelle, Torre Bermeja and Torre Quebrada among the most spectacular sights of the region. Having been originally built in the 15th century to protect the coastline from invasions these monuments are certainly worth exploring.

Visitors staying at our hotel in Benalmadena can find history from ancient to recent starting with ruins from the very first settlements that are located in several caves near the town and date as far back as the prehistoric era.  Then fast-forwarding a few thousand years it is also possible to explore monuments from the Roman Empire. A trip to Benalmadena can also be a trip through time, and just one of the many winter plans on offer here in on the south coast.

Benalmadena is also one of the few towns in Spain where it is possible to visit a real Buddhist temple. The Enlightenment Stupa Temple was opened in 2003 and this unique landmark not only symbolises harmony and prosperity for the locals here but it also sits beautifully on the surrounding cliffs, meaning you enjoy a stunning panoramic view along the coastline.

Why not enjoy a walk to the Castillo Monumento Colomares. This architecturally stunning castle is dedicated to the the discoveries of Christopher Columbus and although it looks as though it dates back hundreds of years, it was actually constructed towards the end of the 20th century by Stephen Martin. Afterwards why not grab refreshments in Benalmadena Pueblo’s main square and appreciate the sweet “Girl from Benalmadena” sculpture which stands overlooking the square as tourists and locals pass through.

Explore another side to Benalmadena this month and enjoy learning about the history and culture that runs through every charming street and hides under every cobblestone. Book your festive stay at our 4-star hotel and really get to know Benalmadena.
