The wealth and opulence that is Marbella seems to have carried on into this Church where magnificent gold leaf and silver abound. The detailed ornate high alter is wonderful. Before you leave, look behind you at the organ which we were told is one of the most musically important in Spain. Go to the tourist office for a map of the highlights of the Old Town and also see some other chapels close by.

Once in Old Town is absolutely mandatory to visit and a moment of silence in Nostra Senora de la Encarnación. A true temple of God, giver of hope for the future. Between its walls, begin to perceive different space and time, you begin to understand your point that being on this earth ...

When wandering around the Old Town, take some time out and visit this lovely church. Very ornate and beautiful, it's so peaceful after the crowds outside. Situated in a pleasant Plaza in the centre of the Old Town surrounded by many interesting streets and buildings.

Like fast cars and fashionable people where people like to be seen. This is the place to go. More expensive than most of Spain but the reason is obvious.
