I always enjoy visiting this church located in downtown Marbella. I find it very peaceful to enter the church and take a look around. This is a good place to rest a little and do some meditation.

This is a truly beautiful old church and well worth a visit. The statues are beautiful and dressed in real fabric clothing. Hopefully we will get to partake in some of the ceremonies when we return in the new year.
