Marbella old town is even more beautiful than it looks in photos. The tradition of the old buildings, tapas, local bars and friendly locals makes the perfect combination for a morning coffee, afternoon lunch or an amazing evening meal with fresh fish, aromatic flavours, live music and great service.

Marbella Old Town is not to be missed, the winding twisted streets open out to beautiful squares and hidden gems. We had dinner in the main Orange square and the paella was to die for.

Still retains its authentic old town Spanish feel despite being surrounded by ugly concrete buildings and tourist traps. Definately worth seeking out - Marbella is not just about beaches and designer shops!
