The village emerged in Arab times, when the region belonged to the Berber tribe Banu Habis (meaning ‘sons of the abyss’), who have lent their name to it.

Sightseeing in Benahavís must include the Castle of Montemayor, the watchtowers built during the Nasrid rule of Granada – Daidín, Leonera, and others – and the small Parish Church of Virgen del Rosario (eighteenth century). However, the essence of the town, in the pure style of Andalusian white villages, can be captured by walking down its narrow streets.
