We chose to stay in self-catering accommodation in this area and never tired of wandering through the narrow streets admiring the white-washed buildings and balconies filled with colourful plants, its churches, the beautiful Orange Square plus of course there are plenty of bars and cafes in which to stop off, sip coffee (or something stronger!) and watch the world go...

This is a very pretty area which is right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Marbella. It is full of cafes and shops and lovely restaurants and a lovely place to come in the evenings. The buildings look very traditional and it is steeped in history. Worth booking a short guided tour to get the full benefit.

Have been in both day and night but prefer night as the character of the town is better. Great shopping and restaurants along with old churches in narrow streets.

Nicer place to shop , stroll , eat and drink than the more pricey Puerto Banus. And nowadays has much more class... The Orange Tree Restaurant is the best place to eat there. 👏🏼🤗❤️

What can I say? My heading says it all. It's a must visit when in Marbella. The old town is everything one can imagine of a Spanish village. It's small cobbled stone streets, labyrinth of tree lined alleys and beautiful courtyards with flowers and small fountains will melt your heart. I love strolling around in the cute shops and lovely... More

Unless you're heading to the beach, the Old Town is where you want to be. It's bustling streets, filled with shops, cafes and restaurants is charming and always busy. Twisting, tiny, flower filled streets, turn into secret squares with seating, a church or yet another street. I don't think we walked down the same street twice! Some of the streets... More
