The design of these gardens is attributed to the Canarian artist Cesar Manrique.


Cable Car

The Benalmádena cable car has very quickly become one of the main tourist attractions of the town of Benalmádena and the Costa del Sol.

This modern cable car connects the centre of the urban centre of Arroyo de la Miel with the summit of Mount Calamorro, standing 771 metres above sea level and offering privileged views over the coast, the Mediterranean, and even Africa on clear days.



The Town Hall is behind a promotion of the basic trail structure in Benalmádena for lovers of this activity. An improvement has been made to the existing network, tailoring it to minor difficulties through surface, signage and slope activities. The number of walking trails and the length of the trails have also been extended.
Benalmádena has now approximately 45 miles of trails with magnificent views over the coastline and with particular points of special interest and geological, botanical and zoological attractions. Most of them are routed to the sierra of Benalmádena, between monte Calamorro and monte Castillejos.
