Benalup


Benalup is located at the heart of the Janda region and crossed by two rivers, the Barbate and the Celemin, which irrigate an area of rich plains.

Casas Viejas was renamed Benalup de Sidonia, becoming simply Benalup on its separation from Medina Sidonia in 1991.

The area acquired further historical importance in the Arab-Andausí period with the appearance of a hamlet next to the castle of Ben Alup (“son of the wolf” or “son of love”).

To the west stand a series of low hills topped by agricultural fields and brushwood; the mountains which lie to the east belong to Los Alcornocales Natural Park.

In the village you have to see: the Tajo de las Figuras caves and Benalup Castle and Tower.
