Benaque was the birthplace of the poet, novelist and dramatist Salvador Rueda (1857-1933) whose work greatly featured Andalucian themes and to whom a small museum is dedicated in the village.
Benaque nestles in blissful countryside with a quaint, peaceful charm unique to the undiscovered Andalucia, yet is just a hop away from beachside resorts and the culture of Malaga city.
