WHAT TO SEE IN BENDINAT: HISTORY, ART AND CULTURE
The name of the town comes from when King James of Aragon camped in Bendinat after a hard battle against the Moors. History relates the link to the origin of the name itself; it is said that the king said "Ben dinat", which means "well dined" in Catalan, after enjoying a meal in a tent.
The castle of Bendinat in Central European Gothic style, built in 1855 by the third Marquis of La Romana, Pedro Caro, stands out. The estate has had several owners and it is still possible to see the castle from a distance, however, due to the fact that it is private property it is not open to tourists.
