“Beautiful historic church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

This is a very pretty historic church. It is still very much in use so you need to be respectful. They have a wonderful pipe organ as well as some very beautiful chapels on each side. The entire Old Town area has little chapels all over and it can be interesting to look for them as you walk around.

“A Beautiful Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

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.

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

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.
