    Pueblo

    The village is an award winner for being the prettiest in the province, and provides a welcome break from the coast. Its small church and surrounding gardens afford panoramic views of the countryside. Narrow back streets house a handful of craft shops, restaurants and the interesting archaeological museum.

    Benalmadena Stupa

    On the west and top end of Benalmádena, we were surprised to come across this Buddha temple. It looks fairly new, but is easy to see from all directions with it's gold tower. On the side is a café and a small store that sells artefacts, and there is a restroom facility. The view from in front of the temple is worth the visit in itself, and a moment of quiet inside is healthy for anybody no matter what your belief.

    According to the website below, the structure is called a Stupa, and is in fact "the largest Stupa in the western world". It was built by the Buddhist master from Himalayas, Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche.
