Even though the celebrations are concentrated towards the end of summer, around the 15th of August in honour of the patron saint of Benalmádena, the Virgen de la Cruz, the place offers a varied leisure program all around. First, it includes the many exhibitions, which you can see in Benalmádena. One will take place in September 2017 in the “Centro de Exposiciones” in the Avenida Antonio Machado 33, an exhibition which is devoted to the international day of peace from the United Nations. Thirty international artists will exhibit here with paintings, photographs, sculptures, video shows and performances with the theme “La Belleza del Ser”, the beauty of the being (open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 1pm and from 6.30pm until 9pm, and public holidays from 11am until 1pm, admission free). The Bil-Bil Castle, directly on the beach promenade of Benalmádena, is worth a visit because of its Moorish architecture; here one can admire the paintings of contemporary Spanish artist Pablo Rodríguez Guy until the 25th of August 2017 (Monday to Friday from 9am to 2pm and from 5pm to 10pm). From the 1st to 11th of September the club Lucky Quilters International will be exhibiting here theirs Art Quilts and patchwork works.

During the summer months of July and August, young guitar and flamenco artists enter the program “Damos el Cante” every Friday night in the courtyard of the historical Ethnological Museum on the Plaza de la Libertad.
