Well conserved and clean Old Town in Marbella, so beautiful to walk through. Recommended 100%. Been there a couple of times already and its narrow streets are great. Plenty of restaurants and bars and shops to choose.

I adored the quaint old streets and the large number of amazing restaurants and bars they had there. My partner and daughter fell in love with the leather goods shops and I'm pretty sure we came home with at least one suitcase full of handbags. Highlights of the area for us were the Zozoi Restaurant (amazing food) and the Galeria... More

A pleasant array of quaint shops and eateries, interspersed with tourist focussed restaurants and bars. Some nice churreria serving hot drinks churro (doughnut) and lovely buildings. Take good shoes for walking!

Love going into the Old Town. Aside from the traditional places - Orange Square, churches, Arab wall etc there are some amazing top class restaurants her too! The shops are beautiful and we always spend time tasting olive oils, or wandering around the tiny alleyways! Make sure you go inside the main church and have a Cana in Orange Square-... More

Loved walking around the Marbella Old Quarter. Couldn't see everything on one trip, so we went back. The Old Quarter is walking distance from the water as well. We enjoyed the history of Los Naranjas Plaza with City Hall, House of the Magistrate and Church. There are maps with all the historic points placed conveniently around the Old Quarter to... More

Shopping, lovely shops, nice streets. You have to wear walking shoes because of the paving stones and cobbles. Walking along the boulevard is highly recommended!

I really enjoyed this market, lots of culture and little vintage shops. Lovely people and streets very pretty making you feel warm and welcome. A nice place to relax and do a bit of shopping with culture and history around you.

Off season it's quiet, but charming as the Orange trees are bearing their fruit. Pity the restaurants can be a little cold as they rarely have heating. Bring an overcoat.

A nice surprise: nothing 3 Star special, but although it was raining all day, we had a good time strolling through the old town, very well upkept, and typical for the region. Just a bit difficult to find a parking space, even in March on a rainy day.
