This is a very pretty part of Marbella, full of character and charm! Lots of restaurants along little side streets, and around the orange square! There are some great independent small shops along the side streets that have some lovely clothes and other items! This place gets quite busy in the evenings, but you feel safe there and it's very...

This is a must see on your trip to Marbella. The quaint streets are beautiful and are exactly what you expect when you think of old town beauty. From the old style narrow streets to the beautiful plants on the building walls it makes for a lovely walk. Most of the shops are cute but there are some of very... More

We had a great time wandering around the Old Quarter. Perhaps it was because it was off season but the shopping was really good. I'm not a shopper but I couldn't resist some of the bargains! The buildings were lovely, the day was sunny, lunch was delicious - a good time was had.

From our resort in Marbella beach (las Chapas stop), we were able to navigate the 220 bus for 3.10 euro each way to spend time. Each winding street provided a new surprise and quaint views. Beware, though: Spaniards really do take siesta. Many of the shops were closed from 13:30 to 18:30, leaving us with nothing to do but eat... More

Take time to visit the old Town, its just beautiful! Step back and wander through the little winding streets, taking in the lovely old buildings and especially the churches. So many lovely places to stop for a drink or tapas, and just enjoy the sights and sounds. There are lots of nice shops too - love it, a must visit... More

Nice but a bit too turisty. Worth at least a short visit if you are in Marbella! However not as nice as many other old quarters in the towns around Marbella. The mountains are worth a visit.
