A typical Spanish church situated in the beautiful area of the Old town. The inside is amazing and the ambiance outside the church is very nice. Make sure to see the processions if you are visiting Marbella for Easter.

This church is a simple church but was very beautiful. After seeing so many massive cathedrals in Spain this was a quaint yet beautiful sigh to see. If in Marbella it only take about 30 minutes to walk in and explore.

Nice architecture, baroque style, this very nice church is located in old town of Marbella,on Plaza de La Iglesia, a real Andalous place; often they have traditional festive celebrations, catoliques feasts, with superbe processions; the church has nice statues, and the feasts are imposing.

Lovely little church in the center of the old town. You don’t need too much time to visit, as the church itself is small. The traditional Spanish interior makes it a highlight of the area.

I hope you don't mind me asking you, but I am looking to get married in a Catholic church in spain and would like to book this church, do you know how much the donation is to the church? I have heard they ask for a considerable about as it is very popular. Many Thanks, hope you don't think I'm being cheeky!
