A nice way to spend an hour strolling around this lovely castle. Plenty of photo opportunities and a fascinating place. Check opening times to avoid disappointment and there is a car park close to the castle.

I think nearly everybody else has managed to convey what a magical and fantastic place this is, so I’m going to add a bit about the practicalities of getting there and a bit about refreshments. Travelling from Benalmádena there are two ways of getting there...More

This is a magical place created with obvious love and talent by the owner family. Incredible array of artistry in the many buildings and ornate designs of this outdoor monumental endeavor. Each building and area has information about what it represents and the history involved.....More

The castle was built in 1987, so it is not of any historical value. It is a bit tacky, but I think children might enjoy it and it only costs 2 euros per person.

Got an uber to this destination! It's not advisable to walk as its up a steep hill. The entrance fee is a few euros, and you get a sheet with information on the site. The site in set on about an acre, and it's truly...More

A very nice monument - from an architectural point of view, amazing. Yet we expected something bigger based on the pictures (but it still looks great). A bit remote, as location, and we found the visiting schedule very restrictive.

A very long uphill walk from balmoral. Dont know about taxi fare but i got the 121 bus which goes to mijas and got off at benalmadena pueblo and from there its a short walk down to colomares which is well worth a visit.

For sure 10 a.m. to 1.30 p.m., then fiesta and again in the afternoon between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. I don't know if it concerns also other periods (after July and August). I recommend checking the hours before arrival.
