Castelo Colomares, also known as the Columbus Monument, is a unique castle located in Benalmádena, a coastal town in the province of Málaga, Spain.
The castle was built in 1987 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the New World.
The castle is dedicated to the memory of Columbus and his voyages, and its design is a fusion of different architectural styles, including Gothic, Mudéjar, and Byzantine. The castle is adorned with intricate carvings, sculptures, and mosaics that depict scenes from Columbus's life and the history of the Americas.
One of the most striking features of Castelo Colomares is its tall tower, which is topped with a large dome and adorned with a golden statue of Columbus. Visitors can climb to the top of the tower to enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding area, including the Mediterranean Sea and the nearby mountains.
