After a heavy night out in Banus, we decided to walk from Banus Harbour to the old town and enjoy lunch in the Orange square.

I fell in love with the cobblestone winding streets. The beautiful canopy of flowers hanging from terra cotta rooftop windows and charming cafes and shops made my visit to Marbella wonderful.

This was in a walking zone, set in a peaceful Spanish town which spelt Leisure. Lots of restaurants and shops selling all kinds of things. This is so typically Andalucian that this must not be missed

We went on an excursion to Marbella old town and it was beautiful. lovely cobbled streets with white washed buildings and quaint shops where you can buy almost anything. Orange square was very lovely with a peaceful feel. we really enjoyed it :)

The old town is a romantic and beautiful place to shop, drink wine and enjoy good tapas. The orange garden smells good this time of year.

Just lovely. The squares filled with orange trees, the tiny, meandering streets and the quaint cafes and shops. Also some nicer quality shopping available.
