There's more to the great conurbation of Benalmadena sprawling midway between Malaga and Torremolinos than first meets the eye. The municipality is divided into three distinct parts, Benalmadena Pueblo, Benalmadena Costa and Arroyo de la Miel. It's where actor Antonio Banderas comes from, and he and Melanie Griffith often visit Benalmadena's attractive marina.
Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths and Arabs all passed left their mark on the area, the Romans and Moors in particular having a noticeable effect on its architecture. The Catholic Kings, Ferdinand and Isabel, also established a defence base there.
The original heart of Benalmadena remains as a typical Andaluz village in the foothills of the mountains which sweep down to the shore. It covers an area of 26,58 sq. km. and has an average height of 280 metres above sea level. The narrow, flower-filled streets hold plenty of traces of the former civilisations which used to exist in the area. This picturesque village and its coastline are eminently suitable for tourism, with a population of over 60,000 people at the height of the season.
