The buildings are beautiful and as it was around Easter the various churches had their parade items out on display, which are quite exquisite. The whole area has a lovely feel to it, with many restuarants and shops around in the various side roads. Worth... More

While in Spain, our teenage kids were mostly interested in WiFi. But if you really want to find that Spanish feeling, take a stroll thru the Streets of Marbella Old Quarter. Loaded with terraces, alleyways, local shops. We spend a few of our most fun nights here! TIP: take the offroad tour and dive into some of the little backstreets... More

Historic old Marbella - narrow pedestrian cobble streets, lots of small cute shops, churches, cafes and restaurants. Perfect place to spend a hot summer evening walking, dining and drinking.

The streets are made of sea stones. We enjoyed several evenings there. Most local people speak good english , very friendly and... More
