During the months of July and August, Benalmadena town hall has organized a special programme called “Cultura en la Calle” (Culture in the streets), an impressive selection of free cultural shows in different locations around the municipality (Benalmadena Pueblo, Arroyo de la Miel and Benalmadena Costa): Paseo del Generalife, Jardines del Muro, Plaza de la Tribuna, Plaza de las Flores, Los Nadales Fairground, Paloma Park and the area in front of Bil-Bil Castle (just a few minutes walk from Sunset Beach Club).
Benalmadena locals, as well as visitors and tourists, will be able to enjoy the best jazz, flamenco, classical music, theatre or movies during the warm summer nights, a cultural alternative which they’ll be able to add to the traditional beach and sun the resort is famous for.
This initiative, which has been a great success over the past three years, is being repeated in an effort to highlight Benalmadena’s cultural diversity.
The programme (see image) includes flamenco shows, jazz shows, classical music shows, summer cinema on the beach, theatre shows, and chess championships.
