The Arabian castle 'Bentomiz'

The castle is located on the ridge
The castle is located on the ridge

The Arabian Castle 'Bentomiz' was founded during the Phoenician and Greek times and even the Romans are mentioning it.
With the Moorish people the 'Bentomiz' castle was developped into a real palace. In 1487 it was handed over into the hands of the Christian legions which saved the building and especially the mosque to be destroyed. 

Bentomiz damaged during rebellion
 
In 1569 'Bentomiz' was the center of the rebellion of Malay Mohammed Aben Humaya. During the strike down of this the castle was severely damaged, the huge doors were smashed, walls knocked down and the towers set on fire, and so the castle became in a very bad shape. It still gave protection to the coastal and hilly region but it became more and more dilapidated and the people gave it up and left it. 

Alcabar
 
Today you still can see some good preserved rests of the castle, especially the massive north wing with its pinnacles and loopholes. The ground-plan of the entrance area - guarded by two huge towers - can be seen very well, as well as the underground storagerooms, the inner castle and the "Alcabar", the big walled inner level area in the southern part with its four towers. 

The views
 
The historical construction is located 709 meters above sea level and 4 kilometers from the coast in a unique situation surrounded by pure wild nature with old venerable olive and almond trees, unspoiled views along the whole coastline, on clear evenings sometimes with sight over to the maroccian coast or to the High Atlas mountains in North Africa, additionally to the eastside marvellous views onto the majestic Sierra Almijara and the Montes de Malaga in the west. 
The access is still via dirt track, but EU funding will provide a tarmac road between Algarrobo and Arenas.
