  • An absolute must see if you are in Benalmadena, Spain. This is one of my favorite places. I love the views here. They do take donations, so be sure to help please. Across the street, they have a butterfly garden. Also worth seeing. There are a few places to explore close by. And if you are willing to walk 7 to 10 minutes, you can go to the Castillo Colomares.
  • I would highly recommend to visit Stupa in Ben Almadena. No matter if you are buddhist or not, you can really feel that something positive is happening on that place. The energy is simply so positive, you can feel it. It is important to know that you go around stupa CLOCK-WISE. You can positive wishes and wishes for your family. You can imagine something positive. The view is really far beyond all the dreams. There has been fresh wind. So, you do not get hot even during sunny days. The place is simply ABSOLUTELY beyond dreams. Fabulous views. Very beautiful inside. Open Tuesday to Sunday 10:00-14:00. And from 16:00 to 18:30. Please, visit. Enjoy. Be happy.
  • Loved my visit to this Buddhist Stupa and to go inside and admire their workings. Great views from the balcony over the coast. Friendly and helpful staff.
  • Amazing place, from the moment you see it, is like energy is calling you jn to visit, is very peaceful and has a monumental view of the city below, well keep, plenty of parking and is for tourists and for meditations.
  • A must place to go. The view is superb and Stupa is something to see as well! Also there is a live webcam so you can enjoy the view from home if you live somewhere else!
