Various caves, numerous rests on the beach and in the mountains. Past times have left the print in many corners of Benalmadena, there are remains from the Paleolitico to the musulmans, or remains of the early Christians. A gigantic cultural heritage.

Lets start our tour with the caves. There are five caves of great historical value to be encountered in the municipality of Benalmadena: The cave of la Alquibla (discoverd in the year 2000); The cave of Zorrera, where remains where found on how sepultures used to be; the cave of Del Muro; the cave of Los Botijos, also called the cave of los Cacharros, presents an excellent state of conservation and the cave del Toro, a discovery made in the Mount Calamorro at a height of 600 metres. There are remains of the neolitical period. This cave was discovered in 1969.

Leaving aside the caves we walk to the beach Playa de Arroyo de la Miel, where a Roman site can be seen. This Roman ruins are the remains of the former Salazones factory, where the Garum, the caviar of the Roman emperor was produced. On the other side, next to Avenida de Erasa, we encounter other Roman ruins, called Benal Roma.

Also the watchtowers of Torrequebrada and Torremuelle are to be pointed out. The first one is Musulman and the second Christian. Both had the same objective, to defend the coast from attacks and invasions deriving from the Mediterranean and the North of Africa.

Also the Plaza (square) de España, in Arroyo de la Miel, has an important archaeological value, as it was here, where the town was born with the first construction of houses where the workers of the paper factory where living.
