The largest Butterfly Park of Europe, in Benalmadena

Mating Common Buckeye Butterflies

Do you like butterflies? Would you like to visit the largest facility devoted to butterflies in Europe? When you are spending your holidays in Benalmadena or other close by resorts of the Costa del Sol, such as Torremolinos or Fuengirola, you are very close to enjoy a wonderful experience for the whole family in the recently opened Butterfly Park.

In the Mariposario Benalmadena there are over 150 different species of butterflies, most of them originating in tropical areas. An area of over 2,000 square meters includes a glass walled tropical garden of more than 900 square meters and 8 meters height and almost 2,000 butterflies from all around the world.

Visitors can view thousands of butterflies in their natural habitat, flying around the audience. To provide the facilities with a greater authenticity, have been used decorative elements of Thailand, with an aesthetic inspired by the harmony of the classical Tibetan Temple located just a few meters away.

The facilities are located in Retamar, Benalmadena, with great views over the mediterranean coast.
