Benalmadena - Things To Do

Mariposario de Benalmádena

The Mariposario de Benalmádena is the largest butterfly park in Europe, where more than 1,500 butterflies from tropical areas all over the world, fly free.

Many of the butterfly species reproduce in the park itself, so you are able to see all the stages of their fascinating biological cycle. Every day, new butterflies are born in the nursery and you can watch them hatch from a chrysalis and then spread their wings, to take their first flight.

Some of the butterflies seen flying in the butterfly park, are bred in their home countries by local people, usually farmers with low incomes. Often, the plants needed to raise them are native species, with no other commercial value, so their cultivation contributes to the conservation and reforestation of these habitats.

The Mariposario de Benalmádena is 30 minute (2km) walk from Casa Christabel y Casa Annabel or a 5-minute drive.
