Marbella Old Town


Welcome to Marbella Old Town, where history whispers through cobblestone streets and colorful bougainvillea drapes over whitewashed walls. Nestled amidst the glitz and glamour of the Costa del Sol, this enchanting quarter beckons travelers seeking an authentic Andalusian experience.

Take a stroll among cobblestone streets, get lost in hallways admiring the unique architecture and the colourful flower pots. 

You will discover colours of bunganvillas you've never seen before and the enchanting geraniums all over the walls.

To freshen up, sit in Orange Square and enjoy some people watching, where the Moorish influenced architecture goes back centuries then tour around the back to see the Roman city walls.

Find a unique souvenir in one of the many artisanal shops to take home and remind you of this unbelievable experience, while supporting the small local business and historic manufacturing.

Take a guided tour with Javier that will uncover a secret behind each wall and point out to his favourite tapas places

Go for an olive oil tasting in D'Oliva

Take 1000s pictures in every corner

Discover a hidden tapas place that has been there since before you were born, the more you go behind the busy streets, the best they will get. You might even walk into a family courtyard, but be assured that the locals are extremely welcoming!

Admire the sun setting over the white enchanting buildings from one of the many rooftop terraces, it's absolutely spectacular and make a change from the beach sunset watching.

But when Marbella Old Town really comes to life and its authentic splendour shines, is during Easter Week with the holy processions, when all the locals gather together to admire them. Find a good spot and you'll be entertained for hours, so make sure you experience it at least once in your lifetime.

There are many more reasons, but you'll have to uncover them yourself!
