Take time to visit the old Town, its just beautiful! Step back and wander through the little winding streets, taking in the lovely old buildings and especially the churches.

So many lovely places to stop for a drink or tapas, and just enjoy the sights and sounds.

There are lots of nice shops too - love it, a must visit location :-)

“Nice Old Quaters”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Nice but a bit too turisty. Worth at least a short visit if you are in Marbella! However not as nice as many other old quarters in the towns around Marbella. The mountains are worth a visit.

“Marbella Old Quarter”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Away from the trendy shops of Marbella is the old quarter of cobble stone streets, centuries old houses and quaint churches. Tapas and Sangria at a pavement cafe with friendly locals certainly put the Bella!! in Marbella.

“Lovely place to spend the day.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Old Town Marbella is a lovely place to spend a few hours. Stroll the quiet narrow streets that are filled with flowers, browse in the many small shops and enjoy some time outside in a cafe. There are a few churches that are very beautiful. The underground parking in the old town is very tight and I will never do it again. Next time I will park just outside the old town and walk in. We had a rental Citroen that did not want to go up the exit ramp from the car park since it was so steep. Be aware that many of the shops close for siesta so plan your visit accordingly.

“An Interesting Place to Visit”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The Old Quarter of Marbella is like a small white town, where all the houses and buildings are painted white. The facades of many buildings are decorated with flowers and flower pots. There is also bouganvillae that is very colorful. The streets are very clean and there is no graffiti. There are many interesting stores in the area.
