Arenas village is of Moorish origin and is situated 44 kilometres from Malaga and 10 kiometres from the coast at Velez Malaga and is 416 metres above sea level. The terrain is composed of a succession of gentle hills abounding with almond and olive trees and grapevines.
The Bentomiz fortress built on a hill of the same and close to the village, has played such a decisive role in the history of Arenas that no reference is possible to this locality without first alluding to the Bentomiz castle, whose origin has been dated to the Iberian era. It is believed that the Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans all successively occupied and modified it. Together with the castles of Comares and Zalia, Bentomiz castle was considered one of the three most important Muslin bastions in the central part of La Axarquia.
