When wandering around the Old Town, take some time out and visit this lovely church. Very ornate and beautiful, it's so peaceful after the crowds outside. Situated in a pleasant Plaza in the centre of the Old Town surrounded by many interesting streets and buildings.

Like fast cars and fashionable people where people like to be seen. This is the place to go. More expensive than most of Spain but the reason is obvious.

Many people who go to downtown Marbella miss this church. I enjoy seeing it whenever I go downtown because it is quite beautiful. I say a little prayer before I leave the church.

Beautiful church, we spent a good hour wandering around. It was a great background to the marriage of my wife's niece who travelled from Ireland.

This is a very pretty historic church. It is still very much in use so you need to be respectful. They have a wonderful pipe organ as well as some very beautiful chapels on each side. The entire Old Town area has little chapels all over and it can be interesting to look for them as you walk around.
