Beautiful to wander around late afternoon/evening as the heat dissipates. The town stays busy until late at night with shops open and plenty to explore. Lots of picturesque photo opportunities on tiny cobbled streets, white wall chapels, fountains, statues and floral displays. The restaurants and bars spill into the streets, adding to the atmosphere.

The Old Quarter of Marbella is a definite must for tourists. Its ancient fabric with its cobbled streets and narrow lanes has been very well maintained and there are many small shops and restaurants catering to various tastes. The restaurants right on the famous Orange Square are a bit expensive, which is not surprising given the location. Howeve, there are... More

I'm no fan of shopping but have to admit there's plenty to see and do besides trail around shops. From historic chapels and the huge church, attractive squares and whitewashed buildings covered in colourful bougainvillae, there are plenty of alleyways to explore. In the evening, the area really comes alive, especially in the Plaza Naranjos. This is where you find... More

If you love to discover then Old Marbella is just the ticket. It's great just to walk around the narrow streets and cobblestones. If you get tired or need a lift just stop at any bar and enjoy tapas and drinks. Grab churro sand coffee in the morning and you're set. Plenty of shops to choose from. Don't leave Spain... More

The area just inside the main road road through Marbella is full of charming shops, restaurants and squares. The centre of the Old Town is Orange Square named after the numerous orange trees growing there. It is a wonderful place to stroll, relax and if so inclined to eat and watch the world go by. The restaurants in and around... More

"Orange Square" or the Old Quarter of Marbella is well worth a visit. It is the historic centre of Marbella complete with orange trees, restaurants and shops. There are plenty of narrow streets to stroll about either during the day or evening.

Sadly, a large part of it was covered in scaffolding, with noisy construction work in progress. The lack of health and safety was 'hair raising', so we kept our distance. The square is full of history with wonderful architecture; we stopped for a drink, but chose not to have a meal as in the middle of a building site. The... More

Lovely place to while away the afternoon and sit at the many cafe's people watching. Let the sangria flow and engage in conversation with the locals. Friendly and atmospheric place, well worth a visit and in my opinion the highlight of the Costa del Sol.
