The highlight of visiting Marbella was an evening walk round the Old Quarter followed by a fabulous meal of the local cuisine. First impressions of Marbella were that it was a big urban sprawl and I wasn't so enthusiastic about fighting our way through traffic to get to the centre of Marbella.

Good for a morning or afternoon explore. Beware that most of the shops are closed between 2PM and 5PM, though the restaurants remain open.

Well worth a stroll around this old quarter of Marbella. Mainly pedestrian with colourful squares and alleyways. Beautiful churches, ancient houses and plentiful cafes and bars. Parking nearby in underground car parks.

Wonderful way to spend a couple of hours wondering around. So many quaint shops and cafes if you fancy a drink there is restaurants and a bakery to die for selling cakes so many.

Although it was raining slightly, this place is still stunningly beautiful. Orange trees can be seen in the tiny streets . Top class day out for sight seeing and good food.
