Not many cities have such a compact, lively, and pretty old quarter. Masses of interesting boutiques and places to eat. Lovely flowers everywhere. Parking at Plaza Victoria was 6 cents per minute.

Lovely place to visit. Plenty of restaurants and bars. Some places are expensive but you can get a good meal and a drink for a lot less if you look around.

An easy place to wander around to get an idea of time gone by. Old buildings have been maintained but have changed use so you can get the best of ancient style and modern purchasing options.

The highlights for me were the tiny side streets and dead ends whose walls were covered with flower pots and giant bougainvilleas. The church is beautiful. The best place for a coffee is the charming Plaza de los Naranjos, especially when the orange trees blossom and fill the air with intense perfume

El Casco Antiguo is a beautiful part of the city with its narrow streets festooned with flowers, fountains and churches. There are also some great restaurants and shops but be warned - it is more expensive, especially if you choose to eat in la Plaza de Naranjos. Head slightly off the main parts for better quality and value

When I travel I like to find areas that have not been overly developed. The orange square in marbella's old time is a timeless area with some beautiful buildings, churches, shops and eateries. We'll worth a look xx
