Lovely area, a taste of how Marbella used to be. A warren of alleyways, full of designer shops, souvenir shops, bars/ restaurants and at the very heart of it, a square with a tranquil church. Lovely!

The old quarter combines traditional and modern shopping with beautiful scenery. Orange square the centrepiece, offering good food and ice cream. The square is very pretty at night. It is possible to walk from the beach to the old quarter in about twenty minutes. The narrow cobbled streets and small churches/shrines really add to the character of the place. I... More

Nice place for a stroll late evening, shops still open and the restaurants / bars find alive. Inevitably there are a few tacky souvenir shops and a Costa Coffee but they are very much in the minority. Lovely old churches, even the cynical agnostic in me can't help but be moved to a degree of reverence by their beauty.

Marbella itself was a disappointment until I wandered into the old town and wow. What an amazing place, narrow alleyways leading into squares and more narrow paved streets. I just wish I had been able to spend more time wandering around exploring this beautiful old section of Marbella. I hope to visit again someday.

We're staying at the NH Marbella Hotel but this morning went off on a serious walk in search of the heart of old Marbella. I'm so glad we did! It is gorgeous, full of quaint little streets adorned with pots of plants and Bourgainvillea everywhere. There are plenty of lovely boutiques filled with tempting clothes, baskets, jewellery etc. You could... More

Wonderful walk round and coffee stop - a must for photographers and a visit to the church (which is beautiful) is recommended. I couldn't stop taking photos of all the flowered tiny streets!

YOu see this sign when coming along the AP7 or N340, El Casco Antigua, so these highways lead you in to the centre of Marbella. Like most city centres it´s not easy to park but there are always paid parking spaces usually underground. The mpst well known and central is underneath the Alameda. The Alameda being an urban park that... More
