This is totally different from the new Marbella, so peaceful which gives you the time to wander round the narrow little streets looking at all the nice shops at your leisure with no hassle from anybody to buy. There are restaurants in most of the squares so you are never far away from refreshments.

been here many times but haven't reviewed before as i didnt realise it was a particular attraction, its a fairly small area of cobbled streets with a few tapas bars, and smaller shops, in my opinion the old area of Estepona is far more interesting!

Visited the Museo del Bonsai thinking it was a local history museum but no - it's a museum of Bonsai trees - ooops!

Well, we were very pleasantly surprised by Marbella's old quarter. All the hype surrounding this city never led us to believe it would have such a charming area. I imagine that with the summer crowds it is an entirely different treat but in March it was pleasure to meander through these streets and enjoy tapas.

Stop here on the golden mile excursion. Took a stroll round the shops and side streets, through orange square then onto the beach and stoped at a little beach resturant. Very nice and old fashioned. Was approached several times by the street sellers one after the other, unlike some countries they do take no for an answer. It's a nice... More

Everyone believes that Marbella is only a luxurious city and parties with superficial people. But Marbella is a whole world! Nothing more to go to Old Town! It's a real gem of a narrow callejitas with old houses, squares, gardens, flowers, museums, churches, small shops selling souvenirs both articles as businesses that have not changed for over 50 years! ,...

When visiting Marbella we always head to the old town for a couple of hours. It is a gorgeous place to wander, lovely shops, churches, buildings and squares to discover. We head to the main square for Sangria and then meander around to shop and look. Since we were expecting a daughter (now 8 months old) we have visited Le... More
