Owner description: This old neighborhood is full of romance, with narrow, winding cobblestone streets: great for evening strolls.

Marbella old town (Casco Antiguo) is an absolute must if you find yourself in Marbella. It consists of many, quaint narrow, winding streets, some of which are purely residential and others containing souvenir shops, boutiques, tapas bars and restaurants. The residential streets contain mainly whitewashed houses outside of which stand pots of brightly coloured flowers which are a visual delight. The old town was built around 500 years ago by the Moors who occupied Spain at the time. It is a real oasis in high summer when the temperature approaches 40 degrees as in it one can find a little coolness and tranquility. Whether you wish to have a cooling drink in either Orange Square or one of the smaller streets, view the old castle walls, or take in a cultural tour of the Museo del Grabado, the old town has something for everyone and must not be missed

Great area of Marbella, lots of restaurants. Pricier near to the central area, try the side streets just away from that for probably better service and some more rustic food.
