Colomares Castle is located at the Carretera del Sol in Benalmadena Pueblo.
This beautiful edifice was constructed by Dr. Esteban Martin y Martin, with the help of two masons, between 1987 and 1994. Originally it was used to fly the eagles that are now housed at the top of the mountain that you can get to by the local cablecar – though, of course, you can still walk up if you’re feeling energetic!
It has the look of a castle in a fairy tale and was constructed with brick, concrete, natural stone, wood, and other materials.
The castle was dedicated to Christopher Columbus (see the prow of his ship Santa Maria jutting out on the right of the picture ) and his discovery of the New World. Inside there are beautiful glass windows and a tiny chapel and outside lovely gardens.
