This is a magical place created with obvious love and talent by the owner family. Incredible array of artistry in the many buildings and ornate designs of this outdoor monumental endeavor. Each building and area has information about what it represents and the history involved.....More

The castle was built in 1987, so it is not of any historical value. It is a bit tacky, but I think children might enjoy it and it only costs 2 euros per person.

Got an uber to this destination! It's not advisable to walk as its up a steep hill. The entrance fee is a few euros, and you get a sheet with information on the site. The site in set on about an acre, and it's truly...More

A very nice monument - from an architectural point of view, amazing. Yet we expected something bigger based on the pictures (but it still looks great). A bit remote, as location, and we found the visiting schedule very restrictive.

Would recommend a visit at this place for anyone who's around Benálmadena! I honestly did not know what to except from this, we thought it looked interesting and the entry was dead cheap (only €2). The architecture is really strange but interesting, but what I...More

Don't expect to be visiting a castle. This is a monument to Christopher Columbus. Finished in the mid 80s yes the mid 80s. A €2 entry fee is worth the money just for the views as well as the gardens that flourish with different coloured...More
