This old neighborhood is full of romance, with narrow, winding cobblestone streets: great for evening strolls.

Old town Marbella is so scenic! Ditch the guide book and just wander! Before 10 am you can take pictures without a lot of people in them. Check out the park with the Bonsai museum in it, then wander back through old town after the shops are open. Terrific!

Marbella old town is a must visit if you are in the area. Pretty cobbled streets with lovely flowers making it a beautiful place to wander around. Lots of individual shops selling all sorts and good tapas bars to stop for refreshments!!

Spent the morning here going up, down and across the multiple alleys and streets in this region. It's all very nice with something for everyone, pretty churches, lots of different cafes to enjoy especially around orange square. Unique local shops selling all sorts of products. It's a lovely place to visit while you are in the area.

Bars, restaurants, quaint historic buildings, brilliant atmosphere at night. Make sure you head north from Orange Sq into the back streets to avoid the 'touristy' places & higher prices. You'll love it!

Wonderfully maintained streets and alleyways, full of smart shops and lots of restaurants. Very 'touristy' but very pleasant just to browse around.

Great old town has a good mixture of bars and shops that will take you a few hours to walk around just wander down all the little side streets

This is a great place to wander around. It is the old town of Marbella. I love the old narrow streets that boast very nice shops. You can get everything here: shoes, souvenirs,jewellery, eye glasses, and clothes for everyone. The beautiful Plaza de naranjas is a great place to stop for a drink or a meal. Definitely worth a visit!
