Visited this amazing Cathedral during the day. THEN in the evening we watched the parade as the young men and women carried the 1,000 kg 'throne' - which we had seen in the cathedral earlier in the day. A great experience

Whilst in the old quarter of Marbella we visited this church. It's beautifully maintained inside and outside. Even if you do not have a faith, the stain glass windows and religious figures are magnificent.

This church in the center of Marbella is my favorite. Many times a day you can go to visit a mass but also when there is nothing going on it's worth the visit!

Be sure to stop into this church near Plaza de las Naranjos. It is innocuous from the exterior but very beautiful and peaceful inside. The square outside reminded me of a quintessential old square in this Casco Antiguo de Marella.

Highly recommend visiting the church as the interior is absolutely stunning and a peaceful place to sit a while and thank God for the beauty of Marbella.
