The old quarter of Marbella is a fantastic taste of authentic Andulucian cuisine and hospitality. The histotic old town will delight you with its mix of traditional tapas and more contemporary offerings. Great value for money and not to be missed. Make sure to take a map so you don't miss any of the beautiful chapels or the delightful town... More

We loved this Old Town. It was spotless and lovely during the day and the night. The evenings are magical there and a great choice of eateries and shops. You get a real feel of Spanish culture.

Throughly recommend exploring the old town, but I would step just outside to get equally as good food at half the price.

A wonderful place to explore. A great place to eat. Not a bad place to shop either. You could eat at a different place every night and the quality of food was always good.

A visit to the Plaza de los Naranjos (Orange Tree Square) is essential to experience some of true Spain. Spend time exploring the narrow, quaint streets; visiting the churches and enjoying tapas or churros and chocolate in one of the many restaurants in this part of Marbella.

We took a scenic walk around the old quarter, visiting various places including Orange Square. 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
