“Orange square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Orange Square is quaint and the streets around the area are well worth visiting to see Old Marbella. If you want coffee or eating places it is worth walking to the harbour as they are slightly cheaper.

“Adds a bit of culture to a modern resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

The old town in Marbella is well worth a visit if you want to see what a typical Spanish town looked like before the arrival of mass tourism.

There are plenty of quaint little shops and restaurants with a friendly greeting from most of them. I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and it was a pleasant place to spend a morning.
