Benahavis, Costa del Sol, Andalucia, Spain

Benahavís is a beautiful inland, whitewashed town with winding narrow streets and is situated in one of the most mountainous areas in the western Costa del Sol. It stands 500 metres above sea level, 7 kilometres inland from the Guadalmina Golf Course, and is reached by driving through the rio Guadalmina gorge up into the hills.
 
Benahavís is home to numerous restaurants giving it the name 'The dining room of the Costa del Sol' and nine golf courses in the area. As Puerto Banús and Marbella are nearby, Benahavís is quite a prestigious area.
 
In the centre of the town there are a number of points of historic interest including the 18th century church and a 16th century palace. Overlooking the town there is the ruined Castle of Montemayor.
