Colomares Castle - Benalmadena, Malaga




Benalmádena is a town and municipality in the province of Málaga, part of the autonomous community of Andalusia in southern Spain. The municipality is situated approximately 12 kilometers to the west of the city of Málaga, on the southern coast between Torremolinos and Fuengirola, in the heart of the Costa del Sol and Alhaurín de la Torre in the North. It forms part of the metropolitan area of Málaga and resides in the comarca of the Costa del Sol Occidental, the joint board the Commonwealth of Municipalities of the Costa del Sol Occidental and the judicial district of Torremolinos. It caters for a large number of tourists. The town is also home to Benalmádena Stupa, the largest stupa (a structure important in Buddhism) in the Western world, standing 33 meters tall.

It covers an area of just over 27 km2 that extends from the summits of the Sierra de Mijas to the sea, falling in some places as a cliff. The territory is crossed from east to west on Highway A-7, which connects with the provincial capital and other centers of the Mediterranean coast.
