It seems to us like this old village was what real Spain is all about. Narrow streets lined with whitewashed houses and shops. Nice little tap restaurants are abundant and the prices are reasonable.

Took the bus from Benalmádena Costa to Benalmádena Pueblo and fell in love with this picturesque village with a fantastic Cathedral, fabulous outlook to the sea and a gloriously floral streetscape. It is a must see for all visitors

A visit to Pueblo is a must. The old town and views of the sea are great. We enjoyed the beautiful flowers on the homes as well as the cleanliness of the streets a beautiful visit.
