The old town of Marbella is basically around Orange Square. This is a very touristy area but none the less a place you have to go to. Some excellent restaurants but loads of tourist traps. Go anyway !

Came for an afternoon wander and glad I did. Lovely cobbled streets, mostly pedestrianised and unique specialised shops. Bring plenty of euros as while not cheap to shop it was good to get away from the usual high street shops. No issues also in finding good restaurants or cafés to eat/drink in - or to leave your man in!. Highly... More

The Old Town of Marbella is both absolutely charming and nothing like the glitzy image the media seems to have of Marbella. Orange Square is very pretty and one or two of the restaurants (notably Paco Jiminez and The Orange Tree) either outstanding or at least very good, but you pay a premium for the privilidge of dining in this...

Located in the middle of Marbella there is good inexpensive underground parking if approached as if coming from Banus. This parking is found by driving along the main road through Marbella about 1 mile from the Copper Tower, turn left down toward the sea through all the horse jaunting carts and the turn immediately right. Once parked the Old Town... More
