We’ve been saying it for a long time… Málaga offers so much more than the cocktail of sun,sea and sangria it is most famous for.
The Costa del Sol’s capital has finally received the recognition it deserves by being included as a ‘Top Destination’ and ‘Best Places to Go’ in two of the world’s most popular travel guides: Rough Guides and Frommers.
Since the 30th October the Benalmadena Exhibition Centre (Located just in from of the Riviera Hotel) has been featuring a stunning collection of photographs which highlight Benalmadena’s urban evolution over the past 60 years.
The exhibition, named ‘Benalmadena de Ayer y Hoy’ (Benalmadena of Yesterday and Today), features over 100 photos from an important database of images collected and treasured over the last 60 years by local families and with contributions from the Local Library’s archives. Read More…
All three of Selwo’s Costa del Sol parks and attractions (Selwo Marina, Selwo Aventura and the Benalmádena Cable Car) have put together a magical events and entertainment programme for this Christmas.
Until the 6th January, each of the parks and attractions will offer themed events, magical characters and exhibitions for kids.
