Castles in Benalmádena
Colomares Castle
(25)
Had no idea this existed, let alone visited it before!! to think that just three people built this fairytale-like castle and did so in their spare time. Its an amazing feat. A visit to the Colomares castle is highly recommended. The whole family will enjoy it! I found this very helpful article with a video for the Colomares castle in Benalmadena - http://www.spain-holiday.com/Benalmadena-Pueblo/articles/colomares-castle-benalmadena-a-fairytale-tribute-to-a-true-life-explorer
Castles in Fuengirola
Sohail Castle, Fuengirola
(19)
It's a great vantage point from which to see the whole Mediterranean. Only the outer walls and battlements remain, but throughout the year there are festivals and events. If you go through Fuengirola and have time, take a walk inside a piece of history. It's also worth walking by the outside through the pines, or along the promenade with its silhouette cutting the horizon. If you're able to go on a sunny day, go sunbathing in the sun on the Costa del Sol, you'll relax watching the contrast between the blue sky and the sea. Recommended.

Bezmiliana Castle, is located on Avenida Mediterranean in the coastal town of Malaga to Rincon de la Victoria. This was built in 1766 by King Carlos III. This new defensive construction gives Bezmiliana its name, the same as that of the old fortress. The castle fortress is one of the best examples of civil architecture in the whole region, and also the most iconic landmark of the City.

Castles in Manilva
The Castle of the Duchess or Sabinillas Fortin

Located 100 meters from the sea, this was built where once there was a Roman villa, with a necropolis. It was built during the reign of Charles III in 1767 by the Sevillian Francisco Paulino, whom the king, in return gave him the command of a company of cavalry. It offers a great view of the coast and is a lookout poing against attacks. The police headquarters and the Guardia Civil are now housed here.
Castles in Arenas
Bentomiz Castle
(1)
Following the route of the villages of the Axarquia, we approached the village of Arenas (located 10 Km, Velez Malaga) and from there, we took a dirt track to climb up the remainder of Bentomiz Castle, located on the Mount bearing the same name. Bentomiz Castle was built in the Muslim era, and has been recollected in the memories of Abd Allah, Moorish king of Granada XI century. By then Bentomiz was the main administrative district in the time of the Moorish Kingdom of Granada, so in that period (XIII-XV centuries), this mountainous region became rich from its production of silk and grapes, also raisins. Bentomiz, was conquered (as were almost all the other peoples of the region) by the Catholic Monarchs in 1487. The conquest was apparently non-violent since the inhabitants surrendered peacefully, and because of this, they left an interesting archaeological record. Although little remains of the Castle, make the journey and ascent of Mount since its height allows the individual to enjoy a breathtaking view of the coast and the town of Arenas.

Castles in Alcaucín
Fortress of Zalia
(1)
In these photos you can see what little remains of the fortress of Zalia, in the municipality of Alcaucin, Axarquia, Malaga. The construction of this fortress began under the Phoenicians, but it was the Arabs who finished its building. It is located in the road from Velez-Malaga to Zafarraya, near the province of Granada.
Castles in Comares
Castle-Fortress
In the village of Comares (called the Balcony of Axarquia) the remains of this castle-fortress can be seen. The Moorish castle, was built on an ancient Roman fortress. If you climb up the remains of the fortress to what is also commonly known as "The Tahona" (rest of the great wall that surrounded the castle), you can see a wonderful view of the whole town which appears to be suspended in a rock. You can also see the spectacular Sierra Tejeda Massif to the north and the sea to the south.
Castles in Casares
Arab Wall and Castle
(1)
Located in the highest part of the town, from this location you can see the coast up to the Bay of Algeciras and also the Ronda mountains. The preserved remains and excavations have shed no light on the medieval settlement. The first references we have are from the thirteenth century. The walls are irregular in their polygon-shape and have a perimeter of 770 meters. The gates are best-preserved, "Arco de la Villa" and "Arco del Arrabal", and the castle itself retains just a tower and part of the walls but these are very well preserved. This is a great vantage point from which we can see the great cortado that's right next to the cemetery and large fans which generate energy.
