Benalmadena Pueblo

Tucked up high on the hillside looking down to the coast and the Mediterranean, the old town of Benalmadena Pueblo is a hidden gem.

It has all the classic Andalucian touches, the whitewashed walls, the narrow streets, and the odd surprising splash of colour.

We took a taxi up to the town and a short walk from the drop-off spot was the Calle Real (Royal Street) with its wonderful bright red flower beds and small ornamental fountains.

The Calle Real is probably typical of most of the streets in the town, narrow with doors opening out onto the paved road, which in turn is lined with yellow edging to serve as a safe walking haven.

Calle Pio XII highlights this and also how hilly the area is with the mountains in the background.

The narrow streets do lead to typical Spanish squares, and this was the main one and probably the most famous in the town, the Plaza de Espana.

The highlight of the town is usually the little fountain "La Niña de Benalmádena" but with Christmas upon us all that was swamped with the Christmas lights, but the square remained quaint with its orange trees and cafes.

Religion plays a huge part in Spanish culture and the town is no different - out on a promontory is the church of "Iglesia de Santo Domingo de Guzmán" looking out over the valleys below.

I hope these images give you a taste of the town and its lovely architecture and history, it's certainly worth a trip if ever you are in the region.
