I really fell in love with " El Casco Antiguo" (it's the spanish name). The combination of the old buildings typically Andalusian, the churches, the old and narrow streets, the tapas bars make Marbella old town a very romantic, enjoyable and fantastic place. Wherever you go, the atmosphere is very enjoyable, laid-back, people are very friendly. And what a pleasure... More

Take your time to look jewel after jewel, walk every street's pavement and enjoy the stones, the architecture, the plants, flower and peace you will find. Look at the roofs, you will be surprised.

Old narrow winding streets, little boutique shops and bars. Lots of history, what's not to like? Looking froward to going back.

The narrow lanes and squares in the Old Quarter of Marbella are well worth a visit. There are lots of shops selling a whole range of items, some of which are expensive. There are also numerous small restaurants and cafes open all day

Marbella old town is even more beautiful than it looks in photos. The tradition of the old buildings, tapas, local bars and friendly locals makes the perfect combination for a morning coffee, afternoon lunch or an amazing evening meal with fresh fish, aromatic flavours, live music and great service. Orange square is a must you pay for the pleasure but... More

Very pretty side streets and squares away from the hurly burly of the promenade. Only a few minutes walk and the bars and tapas are superb
