The Colomares Castle known locally as 'Castillo de Colomares’, in Benalmadena, is one of the most fascinating tourist attractions the municipality has to offer. It's not really a castle, it is a monument dedicated to the life and adventures of Christopher Colombus.

“The Enlightenment Stupa of Benalmádena - Introduction Welcome to the Enlightenment Stupa of Benalmádena - a vivid monument to the enlightened mind, a Buddhist monument for peace, prosperity, harmony of the world and an ideal place to learn, reflect, and meditate. The Stupa and its activity are directed and administrated by the cultural association Asociación Cultural Karma Kagyu de Benalmádena and its spiritual guide is H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje. It was built due to the inspiration of the great Buddhist Master from Bhutan, Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche, the cooperation of some of his western disciples, and the support of the Local Government of Benalmádena City with its then Mayor, Don Enrique Bolín. The Enlightenment Stupa was inaugurated on October 5th, 2003. The consecration ceremonies were conducted by the 14th Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche and with the presence of Lama Jigme Rinpoche, the sister of the Queen Mothers of Bhutan, Ashi Sonam Choden Dorji, her husband, Dasho Wangdi Jamyang; Buthan’s Minister Lynpo Sangye Ngodup, Lama Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah Nydahl and the then Mayor of Benalmádena city, Don Enrique Bolin, as well as with the participation of many distinguished guests and approximately 4000 friends from around the world. According to the Buddhist teachings there are eight different types of Tibetan Stupas. Each of them represents an important event of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni’s life story. The Enlightenment Stupa (Chang Chub Chorten in Tibetan) symbolizes the achievement of Buddha’s enlightenment, the nature of a fully awakened mind. Each of the 8 different Stupa types is built according to very precise instructions where both the exact design and proportions have to be correctly followed. The outer structure of a Stupa has a deep meaning at many levels and its inner treasure chambers are filled with symbolical objects. Consequently qualified Lamas charge the Stupas through powerful ceremonies. Stupas are normally closed monoliths, which Buddhists circumbulate (by Tibetans referred to by the term kora) while expressing their deep wishes as being in front of Buddha himself. To absorb its beneficial influence into our lives it is recommended to walk around the Stupa in a clock wise direction. Buddhists believe that wishes done near a Stupa may become true. The Enlightenment Stupa of Benalmádena is one of the few exceptions in the world by having incorporated in its inner structure a meditation hall. This was possible due to the dimensions of the monument - it is until the present day the largest Stupa in the West.”
